Rossidi Rubin

This is one of the finest examples of Rubin in Bulgaria. As always Rossidi focuses his attention to the drinkability of the wine with a subtle elegance which sometimes is not typical of Bulgarian wines. Rubin is a successful crossing between Syrah and Nebbiolo and was created in 1944 at the Pleven Institute of Viticulture and Oenology. It is planted mainly in the Plovdiv area and in other parts of the Thracian Lowlands (Sakar and Struma Valley) and the Danube Plain (mainly around its birthplace Pleven). As the name suggests, wines from Rubin have a deep ruby colour and typical aroma of berries, spices, and herbs. This wine can be consumed young and in the right terroir Rubin could produce wines worth of ageing.
