Protected Geographical Indication Drama
The Oenologist and wine writer Argyris Tsakiris dubs the Amethystos as “the parent of the rich rosé wine category” and not unjustly. Since 1992, when it was first introduced, it created many imitators and countless friends.
Varietal composition: Cabernet Sauvignon 80%, Merlot 20%.
Crystal bright, deep rosy color. Expressive aromatic presence in tones of redcurrant and strawberry candy. Lively at first contact, it then reveals a model combination of richness and acidity, completed by the long fruity finish.
An ideal match for many staples of Greek cuisine like stuffed vegetables, ”ladera” (vegetables cooked in an olive oil-based sauce), seafood, and fish in tomato sauce, but also, a valued ally to face the spicy challenges of Indian or Thai cuisine.
