The grape

In Romania, in addition to the commonly known grape varieties like Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, there are also many ancient indigenous grape varieties that have been cultivated for centuries. Among them, one of the most highly regarded is the Fetească Neagră variety. It is often considered the flagship black grape variety of Romania and is grown in a wide range of regions, from cool climates to warmer ones.

Fetească Neagră is a versatile grape variety that can be used to produce a variety of wines, ranging from fresh and easy-drinking rosés to concentrated and full-bodied red wines.

The "Caii de la Letea Volumul 1 Feteasca Neagra 2021" does an excellent job of capturing the true character of this grape variety. It is a must-try wine for anyone looking to explore the wines of the Black Sea coast.

Tasting notes

  • Appearance
    A healthy, bright ruby color.
  • Nose
    The aroma is rich and fruit-forward, dominated by notes of sour cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry, and plum. It also carries nuances of spices such as black pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  • Palate
    It boasts a well-balanced flavor profile, with a soft and velvety mouthfeel reminiscent of velvet.
  • Food pairing
    It pairs well with grilled lamb, black pork tonkatsu, Transylvanian-style sarmale (rich rolled cabbage with pork filling), Romanian-style stuffed peppers, Genghis Khan barbecue, tacos, and meat sauce pasta.
