Intense and really complex (it was matured about 1 year in barriques, crafted out of French oak), with seducing aromas of black forest fruits “built” on a structure of firm tannins and wood like flavors, completed by vegetal notes. It’s a full body wine, with a velvety texture and one long spiced and savory aftertaste.
CORCOVA RESERVE Syrah 2016
Producer: CORCOVA Roy & Dâmboviceanu
Wine type: Dry Red
Grape variety: Syrah
Alcohol content: 14%
Quality level: D.O.C.
Bottle size: 750 ml
To be served at 18-20°C, in large Bordeaux type red wine glasses, with stem. It will show more character and complexity if decanted / aerated in a large type recipient for about 20-30 minutes before being served.
Absolutely superb with Asian pork and veal dishes, heavily spiced (but not too hot), or with fine air dry or smoked cold cuts. At the end of dinner, works nicely with soft and semi-soft cheeses.
Perfect pairing: Herb marinated lamb chops.
The 2016 vintage received SEAL OF APPROVAL at AWC Vienna in 2019 and GOLD at Vinariul IWC Bucharest 2020.
