Intense ruby – red colour with purple highlights.

In the mouth the impressive spicy taste of black and green pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg are complemented by earthy notes of fresh soil, and hints of dark chocolate. Velvety rounded tannins due to the 12 months ageing in old oak barrels.

Winemaking report:

The 2016 vintage was a good year for our vineyard. The winter was very mild and the buds burst early finally. During the months of May and June there was a lot of rains, which did not affect the grapes thanks to the wild herbs that grow armonically with the vines to our vineyard. The summer was hot and that helped to the parallel maturation of phenols and sugars into the grapes.

Co-vinification of Merlot and Syrah and separate vinification of Xinomavro. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, no oenological substances added. The produced wines are mixed and aged for 12 months in old barrels. Battonage sur lie for 3 months.

Aging potential:

Potential age up to 10 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique aging capacity. Ideal serving temperature between 16-18ο C.

Food matches:

Hunting dishes, rib eye, pork on the spit, cuttlefish in wine sauce.
