2016 Pinot Noir 'Crai Nou', Domeniile Franco-Romane, Dealu Mare, Romania
A superb and supple wine which has lovely aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants. Round on the palate with good balance and soft tannins. It pairs well with strong grilled fishes, such as tuna and salmon, quiche and roasted (turkey, chicken) grilled (pork and steak) meats and medium-strong cheeses.
13.3% ABV. Certified Organic.
The vines of the DEALU MARE (which in Romanian means "great hill slope") are the most famous and renowned vine growing area in Romania. It is 60 kilometers long on hillsides which starts from the southeast of the Carpathian Mountains, enjoying the sun from early morning and a good sunlight all day long. Famous for its red, the Dealu Mare also produces on its chalkier soils, whites of high quality.
