Vlahiko

Peppery character, black fruits, burst of aromas

The blend with the two indigenous varieties of Ioannina, Vlahiko and Bekari, creates an enviable dry red wine with a bursting aromatic character.

The earthy elegance that is given from the aromas of “freshly cut mushroom” as well as the spicy elements in its composition create a completely complex and fascinating bouquet of aromas.

The colour and flavour bring to mind wild red and black berries, such as blueberries and wild cherries. It ages for 2 years in French oak barrels and it is enriched with aromas and body, thus becoming even more exceptional.
