La Cetate Pinot noir
LA CETATE is not only one of the brands that made history in the Romanian wine renaissance.
For Crama Oprișor, LA CETATE was the first line of premium wines made with a meticulousness and care that brought exceptional results from the first year of production.
In the name of a story that is still being written, but also to celebrate the rebirth of these countries.
But… the longer the game lasts, the greater the pleasure!
A Pinot Noir whose first speech is abstruse, almost sweet. Strange nuances, such as old wood and petrified earth, seem to dominate.
Yet once the benign temperatures open up, the armor of the oblivious warden disappears into dark cellars, giving way to exotic flavors of rum and dried coconut pulp, then to the mycotic, carnal discourse of classic European wines, revealing an almost explosive fruity core paired with vague nuances of thick leaves.
At the tasting, it confirms its smoothness, its softness and its richness in a long course in which all the olfactory sensations come together in an orderly and coherent manner.
This Romanian wine has received several awards in various competitions: the Berlin Wine Trophy awarded the 2016 gold and the Mundus Vini awarded the 2004 vintage gold.
