Purcari is putting Moldova on the world wine map with this noble blend ordered by the Royals of Europe for years. An intriguing wine seduces rich structure, deep ruby color and generous bouquet. A velvety taste of fresh fig, black plum and spice slowly dissipates on the lovely enduring finish. A mix of red and black fruits, character together with spice from its three-year sojourn in French oak barrels. Full-bodied and with ample if ripe and fine-grained tannins, and some beguiling earthy notes from its bottle age, this wine would be perfect with any rustic red meat based dish or full-flavored cheese.

The famous quote for Negru? “Like and Iron Fist in a Velvet Gove” try it and you will see why the world Sommelier judges pick this time and time again.
No other winery in Germany, Austria, Hungary and all of Central Europe won more prestigious 2015 Decanter Worldwide Medals than Chateau Purcari from Moldova. In 1878, our small vineyard in Purcari Moldova entered the Paris World Exhibition for wine. During a closed door session, the jury preferred the dry, densely-colored red wine we so devotedly perfected. This was the start of a miraculous life for our wines, and was considered the “Triumph of Negru de Purcari”.
Today, our wines continue to make everlasting impressions. Many of our wines are blended with the Rara Neagra grape like this outstanding Negru de Purcari, which is only grown on 80 hectares in the world. We owe our success to hand harvesting our grapes, the strict cannons of Moldovan wine making, and our magnificent soil at Purcari. Experience how Decanter and other prestigious competitions select Chateau Purcari in one blind wine tasting after another. We have long shared our passion with Moldova and the Royals of Europe, and we hope to open America’s eyes to Moldova’s greatest kept secret.
