Umbrele, the Romanian word for shadow refers to the Carpathian Mountains which dominates the landscape and casts a shadow over the region where Umbrele wines are grown. However, as Romania throws off the shadows of the past, so too do their wines and Umbrele typifies the new, modern approach to winemaking in this great land. Soft, fleshy and velvety with suave red berry fruit and a dash of spice, this is Merlot with attitude. Winner Best Old World Red Under €10 at Irish Wine Awards. 13% abv.
