Tasting Note

A deep ruby red in color wine, fine typical example of Mavroudi variety grown in the microclimate of Maronia. On the nose, a powerful bouquet of red fruits, subtle spicy and vegetal notes (the latter especially when the wine is young). The palate balances the acidity with the red fruit character, while the notable tannins are blended with more elegant flavors of vanilla and sweet spices. Medium to long finish.
