This is a very tasty sweet wine from Moldova. Actually, my first one from this region.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Sweet on the palate with nice acidity that balances it out.

Showing red and black fruits with sweet cherries, over ripen citrus fruits, Indian spices, caramel, mocha, nuts, dried figs, cooked raisins and walnuts.

This 25 year old, still has good acidity, which is nice to see.

Good right out of the bottle, and so much better after 3 hours of airtime.

It does not feel fortified, but I wonder how they got to that high alcohol...

A good dessert wine with great complexity.

I found it in a Russian grocery store for $4. Couldn't help myself.

I paired it with an Italian Fruit Tart cake.

15% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

1827 Rara Neagră De Purcari 2020

Mellow red. On nose strong notes of ripe plums, black cherries and black currant. On the palate really balanced, velvety, grippy tannins and a soft cherry finish. The acidity is quite nice also. — 9 days ago

とってもフルーティーで、グレープフルーツやライムのような味わい。ルーマニアのワインは初めてだけど、とても美味しい!スイスイ飲めてしまうフルーツワインに近いかも。白いお花の感じもするから、華やかさもあるかな。
金賞も受賞したらしい。

Brilliant deep red color with nice nose. Spice and cherries hit you initially but a minerality lingers on mid pallet. Romania continues to exceed expectations 🍷 — 3 months ago
