Vineyard: Private Vineyard of 220 hectares at the Gerakli Slopes in 400m altitude with 8% inclination and northwest orientation. Private vineyard of 20 acres at the village Kallithea in Farsala at the Karyes area.
Environmental conditions: A very important climatic feature of the area is the beneficial rainfalls during the winter and the spring, while the warm summer with the dry and cool nights result in temperature variations up to 15°C. As a result the plants work feverishly, the sap circulates through the plant ensuring that way the rich fragrance, the phenolic maturity and the intense flavor of the wine.
Vinification process: Destemming, pre -fermentation infusion at 10-12°C (48 hours), alcoholic fermentation in anoxidizable tanks under controlled conditions and long post-fermentation infusions.
Features: Bright purple color with complex aromatic profile of red fruits, chocolate and spices. Well structured with soft tannins and spicy aftertaste. Potential long lasting ageing in bottle for 4-7 years.
