Red Velvet

Velvety taste and hints of red forest fruits

The combination of the famous Peloponnesian variety, Agiorgitiko with the two indigenous red varieties of Ioannina, Vlahiko and Bekari, create an interesting blend.

The final product is a very special red wine with a nice deep ruby colour. The aging in French oak barrels for at least 12 months completes the full, velvety and subtle flavour, highlighting its unique “sweet” aromas.
