Fetească Neagră (Romanian pronunciation: [feˈte̯askə ˈne̯aɡrə]); English: Black Maiden)[1] is an old pre-phylloxeric variety of Romanian - Moldovan grape,[2] cultivated mainly in several areas in the Romanian regions of Moldavia and Muntenia and also in the Republic of Moldova.

These grapes produce dry, semi-dry or sweet wines, with an alcohol content of 12-12.5%, a deep red colour with ruby shades, and a black currant flavour, which becomes richer and smoother with aging.
