Babeasca Neagra originates from the region of Moldova, Romania being one of the main countries where it is cultivated. The grapes are small to medium in size and typically have dark, thick skins that contribute to the wine's red color and tannins. Babescă Neagră wines are often deep in color, with aromas that can include dark fruits such as blackberries and plums, along with earthy and spicy notes.

It can be a difficult grape to grow, but it is prized for its unique character. Babescă Neagră wines go well with hearty dishes such as grilled meat, stews and game. They can also be enjoyed with local Romanian cuisine.
