According to Romanian folk legends, the Măiastru, the bird depicted on the labels of this wine series, is endowed with inexhaustible magical powers. He expresses the essence of flight and symbolizes ascension to spirituality and transcendence, the tendency toward the ideal, toward exaltation.
Similarly, wine can play the role of spiritual healer, as a link between the abstract and the concrete. The wines offered by Oprisor in the MĂIASTRU range have a certain personality, characterized by a particular velvety texture, an unusual aromatic intensity and a particular minerality.
A contemporary vinification style focused on varietal typicity and structure of the wines, supported by distinguished acidity. An elegant, refreshing alternative that makes these wines ideal for any occasion, from picnics in the green grass to winter evenings by the fire.

This Feteasca Neagra wine is distinguished from others by its complexity and finesse. The wine has a silky texture, a seductive flow, is friendly, talkative, but not at all tiring. It begins its discourse with distinct cherry notes, joined almost immediately by pleasing nuances of cinnamon, clove, rosemary and oriental spices, finishing with smoky plum and overripe cherry sensations, complemented by fine tannins reminiscent of cocoa powder. A supple and straightforward semi-dry wine, with a harmonious structure.
Recommended serving temperature: 16ºC – 18ºC. It can be enjoyed with slightly spiced red-meat steaks.
