Corcova Roy & Dâmboviceanu, Corcova Reserve, Syrah, 2011, ABV 14.2%
Corcova Reserve Syrah is a very successful example of the combination between French grape varieties and the Romanian terroir of Mehedinţi DOC. The color of the wine is deep purple with a nose that reveals typical notes of black pepper, cloves, and cinnamon. On the palate, the Syrah feels full-bodied and elegant with aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry, blueberry and blackcurrant. A period of nine months spend in barriques gave to the wine a strong structure and final notes of cedar and vanilla in the aftertaste. It is recommended to decant the wine for at least one hour before consumption.
Serving temperature: 16-18°C (61-64°F).
Food pairing: red sauce pasta, ram burger with red onion jam, game, dark chocolate with coconut flakes cakes or with any food you like.
