Set in the south-eastern corner of Moldova just 30km from the Black Sea, Chateau Purcari has long been associated with top quality wines made from both local and international grape varieties.
In 1827 Purcari was officially established as Bessarabia’s first winery by the Russian Tsar Nicholas I and its wines began to attract global attention by winning gold medals at the Paris World Exhibition in 1878. Today the winery is recognised as one of the region’s finest for its hearty reds and elegant whites.
With an intense and bright ruby color, Nocturne Rară Neagră is distinguished by the pure and intense aroma of red fruits, such as sour cherry and juicy currant, with a spicy touch of spices from oak aging, and black plums. The satin texture is dotted with medium, fine tannins, and a spicy sensation that gives it relief.
