Marama – Fetească Regală
Although it is approaching the centenary of its discovery and homologation, Feteasca regală is not yet fully known. It has long been thought that her parents are Feteasca Alba and Grasa, but recent studies have refuted this hypothesis. At Segarcea, these grapes grew for 15 years, until the full potential of the variety was discovered. The result was an elegant and expressive wine, with notes of peach and gingerbread.
The grapes, harvested mechanically, were crushed and kept for film maceration at temperatures of 8° C - 10° C for 12 hours. A light pressing followed and a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures between 15º C - 17º C. The wine matured on fine yeasts for 3-5 months.
Recommended serving temperature:
11ºC - 13ºC. Any deposits certify the minimum number of interventions that are made on the wine.
