SERVE (Euro-Romanian Society of Exceptional Wines) cultivates 110 ha spread over 54 ha of vineyards in the area of Dealu Mare and 56 ha in the wine region of Babadag. Aged between 3 and 10 years old, the vines all come from the plant nursery developed by SERVE. The grapes of this Pinot Noir are harvested by hand and come from the vineyards of Ceptura, created in 2000, with a production of less than 10 t / ha.
Vinification and maturation
Since grapes are the starting point for good wines, winemakers of SERVE place particular emphasis on the choice of the most suitable plots with different varieties of grapes they want. In order to comply as much as possible the quality of these grapes, they are handpicked at their optimum maturity and transported in refrigerated trucks into the winery. The vinification takes place later in stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasts 10 days at a temperature of 25 to 27 °C, in 300 hl containers, with must recirculation. Next, the malolactic fermentation and maturation in stainless steel tanks.
Typical for a Pinot Noir, this wine has a shiny ruby red colour, a nose with cherries, red fruits, raspberries and red currants. Its elegant taste with raspberry and sour cherry flavours is supported by fine tannins and a pleasant acidity that makes the wine fresh.
It can be paired with light meat dishes, but goes very well also with duck or lamb, pizza, cold cuts or goat cheese.
