  1. Peter Strumenliev once your payment is confirmed

    I had the pleasure of trying it recently at a wine dinner in Plovdiv with wines from North-Eastern Bulgaria. This wine was the highlight of the evening. In a year, maybe it will be even better!

wine specificsTasting notes

Cabernet Franc from the "warmer" vineyards near the village of Tsonevo has a juicy fruit nose, with pronounced sweet fruits and cherry syrup. Elegant wine, with powerful but soft tannins, with a characteristic phenolicity, giving volume and length of taste.

wine specificsCombining with food

It is successfully combined with red meats, lamb, grilled vegetables, raw-dried meats and hard cheeses.
