The best grapes are picked in order to carefully highlight the characteristics of each variety: Fetească Neagră, with its complex taste and elegant tannins, complemented by the acidity and complex aromas of the Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend is tempered by the lightness of the Merlot in order to create a balanced wine with a French character. This wine will charm you with its deep colour, its suave scents of red fruits, blackberries, pepper and violets, with its pleasant taste of blackberry, raspberry and vanilla. The strong structure is sustained by elegant tannins and a good length.
