Via Colțul Pietrei
These wines come from two distinct parcels of our Colțul Pietrei vineyard (Stone’s Corner), hidden on a discrete hill of Dealu Mare Region, in southeastern Romania. The 6.86 hectares cultivated with Sauvignon Blanc and 5.2 hectares planted with Syrah were isolated from the rest of the vineyard due to their superiority. This superiority is due to a combination of factors such as soil, topography, rainfall, light and heat of the sun, favoring particularly the Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah grapes growing here.
The Marquis Vineyard (Via Marchizul) is cultivated in Fintesti, the area that convinced the Marquis Piero Antinori to start the project in Dealu Mare, being also the first surface acquired. The 0.9 hectare of Negru de Drăgăşani were separated from the rest of the vineyard in order to allow our team to give a special care to this exceptional grape variety, which has resulted in a wine of high quality.
Launched in 2009, Cantvs Primvs was the first wine created, hence its name and year written in Roman numerals on the label. Initially, only the Cabernet Sauvignon was produced under this brand over three consecutive vintages: 2007, 2008 and 2009. Concentrated, unique, elegant and sophisticated wines that demonstrated the level of excellence that Romania is able to achieve. Recently, our best Fetească Neagră joined the original, intended to show to the world the special qualities that this local red variety has got to offer.
Viile Metamorfosis range offers a generous selection of international and local varieties, a superb example of the grapes that thrives in our vineyards from Dealu Mare region, valorized either as mono-varietals or in blends. The style emphasizes the character of the grape varieties and the ageing process in large and small capacity oak barrels was used exclusively for the red wines and only to add complexity and elegance.
