We introduce you to the first divine from the Republic of Moldova with PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status – Divine Călărași Legenda VS.
Produced from distillates matured in oak barrels for at least three years, this exclusive liqueur possesses an impressive bouquet of complex floral-fruity aromas, but also subtle notes of vanilla, chocolate and honey that provide a long and pleasant aftertaste.
The divine was created according to the classic technology, entirely from wine distillates of European white grape varieties, cultivated and harvested on the producer’s own vineyards with a Protected Geographical Indication. The conditions of the geographical area in the heart of Codriri in the central part of Moldova offer optimal conditions for ripening grapes.
We urge you to discover the potential of this divine and appreciate its organoleptic qualities.
