Wine maker’s notes
A luscious blend of three Greek indigenous red varieties: Limnio, Mavroudi, and Mavrotragano. Limnio, mentioned by comic dramatist Aristophanes as “Limnia ampelos” in the 5th century BC (vine from the Greek island Limnos), is the oldest attested Greek grape variety and predominates in this blend.
Following extraction and completion of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in special oak tanks from Burgundy, the wine matures in French oak barrels.
It has brilliant, deep-red color and a complex bouquet of ripe dark fruits (raspberries), raisins, coffee, and cacao. On the palate, gentle tannins are supported by an abundance of fruit, creating power and balance. The aftertaste continues with a repetition of the spices. Excellent aging potential.
Served at 16–18 ºC. Enjoy it with red meat stews in spicy sauces, game.
