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.

Colour, Aroma, Taste

Colour: Deep purple.

Nose: The aromas of red and black fruits such as blackberry, black cherry and plum are predominant while freshly cut mushroom and spicy elements complete the complex aromatic profile.

Mouth: The robust tannins and its fresh acidity show that it is a wine with great aging potential. The abundant black fruit, the spicy spices vigorously create an explosive bouquet in the mouth.
