Maturation / Ageing

The grapes are destemmed and inoculated with autochthone yeasts selected from the Nemea area. This is followed by a long stay with the grapes, about 15 days, at relatively low temperatures in order to preserve the fruity aromatic characteristics and to extract only the fine tannins. After the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the malolactic fermentation follows.

Vinification

6 months of barrel ageing in French oak of the 2nd and 3rd passage. It is then bottled unfiltered without any prior processing.

Ageing potential: In the next 8 years it is expected to become more complex and velvety

Organoleptic characteristics

A soft, deep and powerful wine are suitable for long ageing. Cherry, dark colour with deep violet shades and a bouquet of fragrances framed by jams of red fruits, pepper, leather, ink, oregano, tobacco and vanilla. Concentrated aromas of herbs and cherry and vivid acidity that keeps the fruit crisp. Tannins are very well integrated and give a silky texture. Round, full of mouth, with a pleasant dart that harmonizes perfectly with its alcoholicity and acidity.

Combine it with red meat, game, reddish dishes, spicy food and hard cheeses. Best served at 15o Celsius
