About the Feteasca Neagra Grape
Feteasca Neagra is a dark-skinned grape native to Moldova and Romania.
It makes some of the most prestigious wines, exhibiting spicy, smoky fruit characteristics and a good tannin structure.
The grape is originally from the historical region of Moldavia, which now forms the majority of the Republic of Moldova. It’s attractive to winegrowers because it is resistant to both cold temperatures and drought conditions.
Feteasca Neagra grapes have thick skins, which helps create a heavy-pigmented wine. They can be used to produce dry, semi-dry or sweet wines, and are known for their deep red color and flavors of blackberry, dark cherry, plum and chocolate, with an occasional hint of oak.
How to Enjoy Feteasca Neagra
