Bargain Pinot of the Week - Fiona Beckett, The Guardian
"The Calusari Pinot Noir 2012 (13% abv), from Romania, delivers a satisfying hit of exotically dark, distinctively pinot-ish fruit ." Fiona Beckett
"You may not have tasted a Romanian wine recently, but I suspect it’s only a matter of time before you do. The value for money coming out of that country is truly amazing." Olly Smith, The Daily Mail
A beautifully delicate pale garnet colour leads through to aromas of violets , dried cherries and hints of tobacco. Juicy, light and berry filled on the palate with a velverty finish.
Can be served cool with fish or room temperature with game or spicy foods. A brilliant example of the good quality wines now being made in this corner of Europe. Stunning value that would cost a whole lot more from elsewhere.
