It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

Like Many Super Tuscans, which blend "international" varieties with an indigenous one, this northern Greek wine takes much the same approach. And, like Super Tuscans, this blending, along with a dose of oak, tends to obscure the regional character of the wine. Yet, despite that, this is indeed a very good, if not identifiably Greek, wine. Ripe, concentrated black fruits on a firmly tannin structure and a lingering finish. Hold another couple of years. Tasted Mar 2017.
