Negru de Purcari 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Product description: "THIS WINE IS LIKE AN IRON FIST, DRESSED IN A VELVET GLOVE!” Purcari is putting Moldova on the world wine map will this famous noble blend ordered by the Royals of Europe for years. A complex conversation wine that is serious but approachable, elegant but ripe for drinking tonight while the rest of the case reaches its peak in the cellar. Harvested by hand and created under the strict cannons of Moldovan winemaking tradition from grape varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon (70 %), Saperavi (20 %) and Rara Neagră (10 %) varieties. Tasting notes: Noble with a rich structure and a generous bouquet, it truly has a regal palate. Intense ruby color with garnet hue. This wine seduces with a velvety taste, balanced with oak and fruit tones. The bouquet surprises with fine shades of plums, chocolate, figs and develops, in time, revealing the fine aromas of vanilla and saffron. Negru de Purcari fascinates with a noble and magnificent taste, its value continuously increasing each year. Pairings: This King of red wines is perfectly assorted with red meat, beef, lamb and game dishes; goes well with spicy dishes, pasta with meat sauces, cheeses: Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton. For the best experience it is necessary to decant the wine for at least 30 minutes before serving. The recommended serving temperature is +18 °С.

Purcari:
Wines you will recognize from a country you never heard of. The noble wines of Purcari are putting Moldova on the world wine map with their legendary wines ordered by the Royals of Europe for years. Their wines hum a familiar Bordeaux tune, but in a key that is 100% Moldovan. In any language, it’s a symphony. Hear that note? America’s next new wine country has arrived!
