Fetească Neagră (or Black Maiden in English) is an old native variety that originates from Moldova and Muntenia and again is capable of producing some great wines of deep colour although the vine needs constant care.
The later the grapes are picked the better the results and a constant trimming programme to arrest the vigour produce excellent results. Fetească Neagră is a bramble fruited red with hints of soft cherry. It can vary greatly depending on terroir and oak influence, some can be earthy while others can boast flavours of cappuccino and vanilla.
A sympathetic nod to the famous legend set in 15th century Transylvania, this wine may not give you eternal life, but it will appeal to the red lover with a charming profile, without falling into the excess of maturity or wood. Dry but silky on the palate, it evokes scents of stewed raspberries and strawberries, a note of cocoa and a hint of vanilla.
