There is no question that this wine is a good Assyrtiko. But is it worth its high price? I think not. Excellent salinity combined with lemon, this wine is perfect with anchovies or salty foods. I had it with Ramen, which worked. But it remains an Assyrtiko, not a high-end Burgundy, Bordeaux, or Napa Chardonnay. And it is hard to distinguish from excellent Assyrtikos at half the price. — 8 months ago

Purchased during 2019 visit to the winery on Santorini. Grapes are sun dried for 10-14 days and then, after fermentation, the wine is barrel aged for seven years. Honey, caramel, dried apricot, orange peel, fig and raisin flavors. Wine is viscous and very sweet—a bit cloying after the first glass. — 6 months ago
Oeno P Tria Ampelia 2020, the first vintage from this new botique winery in Santorini, set up by Paris Sigalas, of Domaine Sigalas fame. 100% Assyrtiko from various parcels, an average vine age of 60 years. Aged in amphorae for 16 months. The typical salinity and acidity of Assyrtiko, with rounded mid-palate of citrus fruits, melon, and a medium length finish.
