Neagra ("black maiden") is a dark-skinned
grape variety that was largely wiped from its original
Moldovan home during the Soviet era. It successfully
migrated westward into Romania, and is now considered
to be a noble Romanian red wine grape capable of
considerable aging under proper conditions.
This wine comes from Dealu Mare (“big hill”),
one of Romania's most esteemed red wine regions,
and is a tribute to the late Frenchman, Count Guy
de Poix, a leader in the Romanian winemaking renaissance
of the 1990s. It exhibits spicy, smoky, black fruit
characters and savory notes of balsamic and herbs.
Robust, yet refined, the wine has excellent balancing
acidity and considerable tannic structure.
