Fetească Neagră

The red grape variety originates from the border region Moldova/Romania. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Coada Răndunicii, Coada Rindunicei, Coada Rindunicii, Coada Rindunicu, Păsărească, Păsărească Neagră, Poamă Fetei Neagră(Moldova); Coada Răndunicii, Coada Rindunicu, Black Maiden Grape (Romania); Feteasca Chernaya, Pasaryanska Chernaya (Russia); Fetyaska Chernaya (Ukraine); Fetyaska Black. The probably very old variety has probably spread from the historical region of Moldavia to Transylvania and Hungary. According to DNA analyses, the three varieties Fetească Neagră (red), Fetească Albă (white) and Fetească Regală (white) are related. However, comparisons made in 2010 refuted the long-suspected assumption that Fetească Neagră is a colour mutation of Fetească Albă (or vice versa). There are at least four morphologically distinct varieties of Fetească Neagră.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
