Balla Geza Feteasca Neagra 2016 / Romanian, red, dry / Black Maiden 100% / Imported with reefer container
Purple-garnet, intense in color. Young, fruity and spicy on the nose. It also shows nuances of blueberry, prune, cacao, licorice, black pepper and iron. The taste is firm but fruity and with lots of volume. The hight acidity makes it easy to enjoy. The moderate oak aroma fused with spicy notes give it complexity. Has a quite distinctive personality, good balance and a good ability to pair with meat based foods.
If you ask us, we recommend associating this wine with a hamburger steak, rare steak, salami and all sorts of cheeses.
