Details/Description

Iouliatiko Boutari sweet red wine (500ml)

The red indigenous variety “liatiko” (Iouliatiko Boutari) is mainly found in Crete and dates back to ancient times. It probably owes its name to its early ripening, since it matures in July - the 7th (VII) month of the year. It offers dry wines, with a high alcoholic content and strong red colour, but also sweet, sun-dried wines with a rich aroma and full taste. “Iouliatiko” borrowed its name from the earlier appellation of this variety.

The  Iouliatiko Boutari, is an excellent example of a naturally sweet wine that captures the seductive aura of the Greek island of eternal summers and the beneficial effect of the sun on a bottle of wine. Deep amber color with intoxicating aromas of raisin, honey, nutmeg, clove, peach pistachio, roasted nuts, caramelized ginger, tea, espresso notes, saffron and countless sweet aromas with myrrh from sweet myrrh.
