Count Guy de Poix discovered the Fetească Neagră grape in Ceptura, in the autumn of 1994. This was the reason why he decided to establish his wine cellar here. 2012 was warm and dry, with a perfect autumn for the Fetească Neagră grape ripening. The result was a deep coloured Fetească Neagră with a perfect varietal expression: flavours of dry plums, black forest fruits and pepper. This is a wild and robust wine which can be drunk on its own or accompanied by red meat or spicy dishes.
