Moldova, Valul Lui Traian

Fresh and fruity scents of bright, lemony citrus and green apple aromas.  The wine has a rich taste, with notes of wild flowers and tropical fruits on the palate. Good structure and noble taste. It has good acidity with a lingering rich lime finish.  Aged in large old oak barrels for 6 months, using the battonage method.

Gitana is a family owned and operated winery by the Dulgher family.  Mr. and Mrs. Dulgher, together with their daughters, Lilia and Iuliana, are convinced that the most important in winemaking process is the limited human intervention, and that technologies should only be used to better preserve the natural qualities of the grapes. That is why they have refused to use artificial fermenters all along, opting instead only for natural fermenters present in the grapes. In addition, they have been using open barrel fermentation, so that the grapes are exposed during the fermentation process.
