Cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Small pieces of Aleppo Pine resin from the mountains of Evia island, added to the must during fermentation gives to the retsina its unique character and aroma.

Potential age up to 2 years.

Food matches:

A clear, easygoing wine to accompany spicy Asian dishes, spicy grilled meat, chicken breast, joined with ginger and lemongrass, fish, marinated seafood and octopus in lime, salads, cheeses, green olives. Love acidic aromatic dishes, sushi and nigiri, small fish tempoura, anchovies marinated, fried fishes and cheese croquets.
