Protected Geographical Indication Drama
Varietal composition: Syrah, Agiorgitiko
Vinification: The perfect ripening of the grapes and the carefully selected date of harvest, which is practiced during the night, contribute to the preservation of varietal aromatic and phenolic potential. Right determining of the durations of pre- and post-fermentation macerations allows extracting this potential, before its transfer by gravity to oak barrels. There, following malolactic fermentation, it is left to age for 12 months with further 8-10 months in the bottle.
The dark purple color with violet reflections retains all its intensity. The nose is dominated by an intense bouquet of cherries and plums followed by scents of chocolate, smoke and vanilla. Generous in the mouth, with good balance and lively tannins contributing to a velvety structure. A long and fruity aftertaste, with a light touch of oak. It’s a wine with great aging potential. It needs to be decanted before serving. Serve at 17-18°C.
Food pairing: It is seeking the company of grilled red meat and spicy game, as well as spicy and unctuous cheeses.
