Today we are going to review a very special wine, one that combines the three most famous romanian grape varieties – Trilogie in Alb by Via Viticola Sarica Niculitel. This wine is a blend of three indigenous romanian grape varieties: feteasca alba, feteasca regala and feteasca neagra, where feteasca alba forms the main body and structure, feteasca regala adds up-front richness and refreshing natural acidity, while feteasca neagra rounds and smoothens the final blend. The grapes are sourced from the Colinele Dobrogei hills in the Dobrogea wine region, while the wine’s blending formula is a statement, that this wine is designed to conquer minds and hearts. That said, without further ado, let’s move on straight to our tasting results and find out how good this wine really is. On to the tasting!

Verdict: this is a very fine and voluptuous wine blend that is right there, at the summit of its prime form – a wine that does not require any more bottle ageing. It feels supple, lean and crisp, with mouth-watering acidity and just a touch of alcoholic warmth on the palate. This a very appealing, voluptuous and noble wine with a medium body and an amazing balance on the mouthfeel – a wine with a nuanced citrusy profile and mesmerizing herbaceous notes in the background. The wine might taste slightly opulent and wide at times, but make no mistake here, this is an elegant and velvety wine blend – one of the best we’ve tasted so far. In order to elevate the noble-smooth character of the wine and underline those subtle terroir notes, we would recommend to pair it with creamy pasta dishes, like for example tagliolini with white truffles and butter sauce. Get one and enjoy!
