About Anima Merlot from Aurelia Vișinescu

Romanian legend Aurelia Visinescu has been producing wine under her own name since 2003 but she has decades of experience around the world before that. The wine comes from Dealu Mare wine area, a hilly area under the Romanian Carpathians, known for quality grape growing. Anima is their premium range, produced in limited edition only from the best grapes in the best years.

Why we love this wine

This was our wine of the week back in October 2016 and now we’re super-excited to be able to sell it now. We thought it was outstanding with a pronounced aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant, plum jam, smoke, vanilla, wood, cocoa and smoked ham with a lovely, long cocoa finish.

Why you’ll love this wine

This compares very well with right bank Bordeaux Merlot-led bottles that cost a lot more. We think it’s perfect for a romantic dinner, a meal with friends or a moment of indulgence. It’ll go well with beef, pork, lamb steaks, grills, and stews. You definitely drink it now but it will get better with another few years ageing.

100% Merlot




Dealu Mare, Romania


Aurelia Vișinescu


Produced only in exceptional vintages, the wine is intense, with smooth and velvety structure, ripe dark fruit nose, well balanced by subtle vanilla notes.
To preserve the delicate flavours, technological intervention has been kept to minimum; therefore a light deposit on the bottom of the bottle could be a normal occurrence.
