Wine of Dealurile Munteniei, Romania. Merlot - Red Romanian Wine. La Umbra Merlot is a full bodied, lively wine which reveals rich, ripe plummy fruit without any oak influence. Enjoy with casseroles, roast meat and well-flavoured cheese. Merlot grapes are planted on the south-facing slopes of the foothills of the Carpathian mountains, in the Dealu Mare region, due north of Bucharest. The vines thrive on the special soils of the area which are strewn with ancient marine fossils and enjoy the perfect combination of warm days and cool nights. La Umbra, meaning shade, was inspired by the Romanian tradition to enjoy fresh, youthful wines sitting in the shade of a large tree in the outdoor summer kitchen found in every rural home.
