The first records of viticulture in the Banat region date back from the period of the Roman invasion of Dacia, in their century AD. Earlier legends tell of the god of wine Bacchus spending his childhood here. More recent history shows that the vineyard of Recas were already renowned by 1447 when the lord of Severin Mihail de Ciorna purchased the vineyards in Recas from Ioan and Ecaterina Magyar, for 32 Hungarian gold florin
Tasting Note:A spritzy start where the acidity is quite high so the wine fruitiness was fresh and zesty, the alcohol was a little higher than expected but felt only a little warm and quite well integrated. The aromas of the wine lay in the area of pear drops and Galia Melon, and these followed through to the taste, but in addition banana flavours and a very sweet start which had reminiscences of boiled sweets, led to a pear drop finish but only a short finish.
