The colour is brilliant, medium deep, violet with pink hues. On the nose it is vivid and intense with aromas of black cherries; blackberries coupled with hints of plum, violet and dried herbs. On the palate it has medium body, moderate acidity with smooth tannins, all in harmony. The aftertaste is moderate with a note of gentle aniseed.
A good accompaniment with duck, goose and gamebirds.
Made using 90% Aghiorghitilo grape with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.Fermented in stainless steel vats. Short maceration, full malolactic fermentation and short ageing over fine lees.
