Tasting Notes

Cherries and berries on the nose, violet, light earthy notes, dry tomato, the classic sweet but not simple fruit of Xinomavro. Persistent, polished berry fruit on the palate, earthy and slightly spicy notes, moderate mineral notes, delicately bitter medicinal herbs in the background, fine-grained tannins, and a good acidity balanced by the juicy red fruit.
