From the Dacians to the 70’s selection
The online wine literature mentions the pre-Roman origin of this variety grown in the Dragasani area. The variety seems to have improved in this same place in the 7th decade of the 20th century, allowing it to pollinate without having to be planted with another local variety, Gordana (unfortunately very rarely seen since). Hence the indication “selection” on most Cramposie bottles today. It produces wine with a high level of freshness, as well as a certain minerality, the most common aromas being pear, citrus, apple and yellow cherry. It doesn’t age dramatically in the bottle more than three or four years – at least I never had the chance to believe otherwise.
