Study regarding the antocianic potential of inland breeds for red wines of Drăgăşani vineyard

Camelia Muntean, Felicia Stoica
Drăgăşani vineyard, a traditional area for the production of white and flavoured wines, presently also distinguishes by red, challenging wines, both on the home market and on the foreign market. Lately, the Romanian breeds Novac, Negru de Drăgăşani and Fetească neagră, grew on the hills and sincalines of Drăgăşani “proved” an exceptional oenological potential both from the quantitative and qualitative point of view.

The grapes of the three Romanian breeds, the high level of convenience of the vineyard is reflected not only through the particularly advantageous proportions of glucides and acidity but also through totally adequate contents in antociani.

The antocianic complex gathers superior characteristics, both from the quantitative point of view and as a chromatic structure. The different categories of pigments from the complex present balanced proportions, able to emphasise in wines o red, intense colour.

Under the account of the antocianic potential the three breeds can compare to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, grew in the most imposing Romanian and foreign vineyards.
