This Castellum Dracula wine is made from Fetească Neagră grapes which is an old native variety.
Clear, bright, ruby red colour, with violet and purple hues and fresh aromas of sour cherries, forest fruits and spices.
Dry, well-balanced texture and acidity, pleasant astringency, rich tannins and intense finish.
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.
The harvesting is done by hand, and at the same time a quality selection of grapes is being made. The maceration and the alcoholic fermentation take place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. It is also here that malolactic fermentation and maturation take place. Once the maturation period is complete, the wine is bottled.
Serve at 16°C with red meats or small game.
