Made from 3 indigenous Greek varieties for the record - Limnio, Mavroudi, Mavrotragano. The history of Greek Wine is amazing obviously. Limnio, the dominant variety here was mentioned by the philosopher, Aristotle in the 4th Century BC. Evidence of the Greeks making Wine in Sicily BC was there on our recent trip and they taught the Romans to make Wine. This, however tastes more like a modern Western dry red because of the use of French Barriques. Unfortunately this masks the identity of the grapes and the terroir. Savoury with berry fruit showing good concentration and silky tannins. Would love to have seen this with less oak influence because the fruit quality is there.

Rubber hose on the nose. #herbaceous for sure, a bit on the dry side, would be better paired with a meal.
