keramos Amphora red

KAMARA PURE

Label: Keramos red

Origin: Northern Greece

Region: Slopes of Kamara, Oraiokastro Thessaloniki

Variety: Limnio-Xinomavro(50-50% blend)

Vintage: 2019

Tasting notes:

Light red color with purple highlights, relatively clear. The wine shows a thin layer of sediment, as it has not been filtered. It was fermented and matured in amphoras, which contributed to bring out the original aromas of the variety, and developing simultaneously wonderful aromas of oxidative aging. Skin contact lasted for 30 days providing the wine with rich tannic structure, while the slow exchange of oxygen from the amphora's pores provided it with a very deep and rich texture. Earthy aromas and noticeable minerality. Dried plum, fig and a blend of herbs . In the mouth taste of maraschino cherry, black and red berries, intense tannins, but also fresh acidity.
