Ktima Gerovassiliou

Evangelo


Tasting Notes

The wine has a dark ruby colour with an excellent and complex structure. Its blackberry fruits on the nose offer spice and depth in addition to hints of mocha and cocoa. The palate is enjoyable with ripe tannins that balance cedar, chocolate, pepper and spice. Great potential to age.

Gamey red meats, BBQ, cured chacuterrie, grilled lamb and eggplant dishes.
ABV: 13.5%
Grapes: 92% Syrah and 8% Viognier
