Category: Dry Red Wine PGI Peloponnese.

Variety: 100% Agiorgitiko.

Location: Nemea, Peloponnese.

Winemaking: Grape sorting, mild precipitation and the use of a peristaltic pump, gives a grape leaf with minimal mechanical strain. The extraction of the red anthocyanins of the grape pulp, with limited use of sulphites, and fermented fermentation enriches the juice with qualitative anthocyanins, while not allowing the incorporation of bitter tannins. Fermentation is completed in oak barrels where the new wine remains for 3 months under controlled microoxygenation conditions, in order not to develop reductive glandular elements and to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine is stabilized tartarically and stays for 2 months for static clarification, it is not filtered, but its bottling is free-flowing without the use of pumps. It matures and evolves in an underground area of the Winery with a natural temperature of 14 ℃ and a relative humidity of 78%.

Alcohol: 13% vol.

Organoleptic characteristics: Bright red color, luminous with purple, violet and blue reflections due to maturing conditions, with red fruits, blackcurrant and forest fruits, with prune jam notes, figs and aromatic spices. The mouth is soft with well-structured tannins and long aftertaste.

Accompanies grilled dishes, spicy variations, cheeses, and pasta combined with red sauces.
