Dealu Mare is the wine producing region that corresponds almost entirely to the Piemonte region, which makes the transition between Curvature Carpathians – Sub Carpathians and the eastern Romanian Plain. The vineyard has deep roots in the history of the region which is called the “ land of red wines”.
Climate / Quality of the soil:
The typical warm, dry microclimate and the rather long autumns favour rich grape crops of good quality. There is a long vegetation time of 210-240 days with a maximum humidity of 55-80%.
The soils are brown-reddish forest with a high content of iron, which is very favourable for the red grapes.

Dark red-purple in colour, the wine displays delicate aromas of berries, vanilla and chocolate, with hints of chilli pepper and green pepper. The fleshy well-structured palate displays rounded, finely textured tannins and lingering flavours.
An ideal accompaniment to barbeques, grilled pork with vegetables, duck, lamb and venison and French cheese.
