This fall, Castel Mimi winery launched a new wine made from local grape varieties called Sfăditele, which was inspired by a symbol often found in traditional Moldovan embroidery. This is a blend made using traditional grapes varieties Fetească Neagră and Rară Neagră, harvest 2018. The wine was aged for 12 months and was released in a limited edition of 14,000 bottles.
It is a rich, ruby wine with hints of cherry and black currant, pomegranate and prune with a long fruity aftertaste, notes of smoke and spicy tannins. The alcohol concentration is 15%.
Sfăditele is a symbol often found in traditional Moldovan embroidery: two grumpy neighbors, represented by spirals, who cannot exist separately and at the same time reject and attract each other.
