AGIORGITIKO (A-YOR-YI-TI-CO) Discovered this grape, traveling through Nemea-Greece, origin. Only thoughts were, why are we not drinking this back home and why are good versions not found in my favorite Danforth tavernas like Pantheon? Fairly deep dryed fruits, layered tastes, uniquely Greek. Excellent starter, no big price commitment, they only get better. I can see the day when this grape is hyped. Will appeal to popular tastes for fuller reds as with the ever popular Shiraz. Better than a Shiraz at the same money, jump on the band wagon now. Ya sis!
