A big wine full of plum, smoke, violets, cherry jam, earth and mocha aromas. The palate is quite punchy with lots of tannins enveloping the raisin, red and dark fruit flavors. Excellent length and a decade of life ahead.
Pairs wonderfully with rib-eye steak, lamb shank and roasted duck.
Grapes: 50% Limnio, 25% Mavrotragano & 20% Mavroudi
