Rossidi’s winemaker artfully fashions the wines with minimal intervention to reflect the characteristics of the grape variety and the terroir. Rubin, a cross between Nebbiolo and Syrah, was obtained at the Pleven Viticultural and Oenology Institute in 1944. Winemaking: After destemming and crushing, the process flows into stainless steel tanks, in small batches, punched down by hand. Fermentation is carried out by indigenous and selected yeasts. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 50% new and 50% old French and Bulgarian oak barrels.  Aged up to 16 months. No fining, no filtration. Tasting notes: The wine combines the firm structure, violets and tar fragrance of Nebbiolo with the blackberry and spicy flavours of Syrah. Rich with long spicy finish.  Winery: Rossidi wines are produced from their own vineyard, located near the village of Nikolaevo in the Thracian Lowlands of Bulgaria. The winery stands out among other Bulgarian producers by showing a remarkable difference in attitude and artistry, which is incorporated into all their winemaking. The winery takes its name from the names of the owners – both Rosie and Eddie.  Rossidi’s philosophy can be described simply: “wine needs to reflect the terroir it comes from, as well as the main features of the variety it is made of; it should not be a commercial product deliberately shaped by high-tech equipment to match the current fashionable tastes.”
