The style emphasizes the character of the grape varieties and the ageing process in large and small capacity oak barrels was used exclusively for the red wines and only to add complexity and elegance.
These wines come from two distinct parcels of our COLTUL PIETREI (stone corner) vineyard, hidden on a discrete hill of Dealu Mare Region, in southeastern Romania.
The 6.86 hectares cultivated with Sauvignon Blanc and 5.2 hectares planted with Syrah were isolated from the rest of the vineyard due to their superiority. This superiority is due to a combination of factors such as soil, tomography, rainfall, light and heat of the sun, favoring particularly the Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah grapes growing here.
The Marquis Vineyard (VIA MARCHIZULUI) is cultivated in Finesti, the area that convinced the Marquis Piero Antinori to start the project in Dealu Mare, being the first surface acquired.
The 0.9 hectars of organically grown Negru de Dragasani were seperated from the rest of the vineyard in order to allow our team to give a special care to this exceptional grape variety, which has resulted in a wine of high quality. In 2013 only 7830 bottles were produced.
Launched in 2009, CANTVS PRIMVS was the first wine that we have created, hence its name and year written in Roman numerals on the label. Initially, only a Cabernet Sauvignon was produced under this brand over three consecutive vintages: 2007, 2008 and 2009. Concentrated, unique, elegant and sophisticated wines that demonstrated the level of excellence that Romania is able to achieve. Recently, our best Feteasca Neagra joined the original, intended to show the world the special quality that this local red variety has got to offer.
The sparkling wine JIDVEI is gradually produced according to the traditional "Metode Champenoise", which makes it a real competitor of the French well-known sparkling wine. At JIDVEI, the sparkling wine is drawn off, fermented, clarified and delivered in the same bottle. It is a guarantee that only the time completes and refines the content from the time it is removed and consumed. The sparkling wine as a raw material is obtained from the grape-types Feteasca Regala, Riesling Italian and Pinot Gris, made using a special technology. Withdrawing, depositing and periodically turning the bottles is done manually with great precaution. All of these processes give the sparkling wine Romantine red or the semi-dry wines, white and rose, a fine, genuine lively aspect, and a freshness that is very similar to a champagne. The wine as a raw material is obtained from the same grape varieties and further processed using a special technique.
JIDVEI is located in the Valea Tarnavelor valley and has been known as a wine country since 1200. Transylvanian Saxons, who once settled in this area and were experienced winemakers, made brandy in Romania for the first time. This is how the Romanian term "vinars" came from the two words "vin" (english: wine) and "ars" (english: distilled). This centuries-old tradition still exists today and so the Vinars JIDVEI brandy is made from young wine with high acidity, which gives it its unique finesse and incomparable aroma. The long maturation of at least 5 years in Transylvanian oak barrels gives the brandy its bright amber color and a soft and velvety taste. V.S.O.P. ("very superior old pale") veryfies barrel storage for at least 4 years.
DACIC Romanian Ciders is a range of flavored ciders with personality, produced in Romania, having a full-bodied, fruity taste achieved by fermenting Romanian apples.
