Tasting notes: The characteristics of Agiorgitiko variety at its top.Deep, dark and thick color with intense fruity nose of cherries, forest fruits and baked raisins in balance with the characters of vanilla, dried fruits and chocolate coming from the long aging process in the oak barrels.Thick and aggressive tannins that require time to smooth.Indisputably, a wine that loves bottle and demands aging in cellar to unfold its merits.

Enjoy it with…

Juicy red meats served with spicy sauces. Ideal for spicy Indian cuisine.

Certainly a long aged wine.
