In Ceptura, the year 2016 – a year that was not easy, started with an early spring followed by a hot and humid summer with an August at temperatures much below average. This year has spoiled us with complex, intense red wines with good aging potential.
Thus, the already classic association for SERVE of the three prestigious red grape varieties – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Feteasca Neagra has resulted in an impressive wine that goes beyond previous years.
Milenium Roșu 2016 highlights the most precious qualities of the three grape varieties that make it up. Merlot (mainly) has the elegance and soft, non-aggressive notes of the tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon supports its structure and consistency and Feteasca Neagra completes the aromas and gives complexity to its taste. The good acidity, the strong but supple and fine tannins, the well integrated alcohol and the final finish make this wine a good companion for the most sophisticated dishes.
