Balla Geza Cadarca 2016 / Romanian, red, dry / Cadarca 100% / Imported with reefer container
Vivid ruby in color. With lots of cherry, framboise, acerola, menthol and lavender on the nose. The taste has a very fruity attack, firm acidity and gentle, pleasant tannins. Strong taste of red fruits. Very well-balanced.
If you ask us, we recommend associating this wine with caprese, cream cheese, dry fig and perhaps even a cherry tart.
