Technical Data: This is a blend of Mavrodaphne and Refosco grapes, both indigenous to Greece. It is likely that this wine was aged in oak barrels but I could not find any "sure" info about that matter.
Description: Ruby red color. The nose is loaded with red and black fruits aromas nicely laced with cedar and leather. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, dry and spicy and exults of plum and ripe black cherries. Cedar and leather notes are present at the very end. Smooth velvety tannins.
Food Pairing & Service: This wine will accompany perfectly medium to high intensity dishes.
Ageing Potential: It could easily lay down from 5 to 10 more years, but it is already amazingly good that it probably won't make it that long into your cellar!
