APLA RED - Dry Red Wine
50% Xinomavro – 30% Limniona - 20% Mavroudi
Viticulture – Winemaking: Grapes are sorted carefully and pressed with whole clusters in a vertical press. Fermentation takes place in INOX tanks, open top barrels and concrete tanks.
After 9 months of aging on their fine lees, grapes are ready for blending and bottling. Aging is taking place in old barrels, concrete tanks, and inox tanks. No new oak is used in order to preserve all the fruity character of the varieties.

The nose is intensively fruit-driven with aromas of cherry, fresh berries and a hint of tomato leaves. The palate is well balanced, smooth and fruity, while Xinomavro gives freshness and intensity & shows good vibrancy on the finish.
Food Matching: Perfectly served with grilled meats, cold cuts and cheese. Its unique structure makes it good with spicy sauces as well.
