This single variety, dry red wine is made from the heirloom Greek variety, Limnionia (Lim noy ne ya). It is grown in a small village on the mountainside of Thessaly, a region with a long history of wine making. Aged in French and American oak barrels. It has a vivid red color with purple hues, a rich, round body and long aftertaste. Cherry and raspberry is accompanied by vanilla and tobacco aromas, with an undertone of white and green pepper. It has a high acidity but a nice tannic balance, making it soft and long.
Pairs exceptionally well with red meats, grilled lamb, spicy food, cheeses and traditional Mediterranean cuisine with meat.
Best served at 60 – 64 o F
