Another Greek wine that takes some time to appreciate, but is well worth it. Reminds me of a Barolo minus some sweetness. Good value, and for once a wine that is ready now.

Claret colour. Certainly old world style. Delicate and floral. Notes of crushed flowers, predominantly roses with cherries. Fine balance and soft tannins.

Tasted July 2012.
