2012 Liatiko sun-dry red

The Philosophy
The indigenous red grape variety Mandilari meets the cosmopolitan Syrah in a wine that expresses the winemaker’s patience and perseverance towards perfection. This wine is produced only in exceptional years and it is kept in the winery until it fully develops its character, even if it takes several years. After maturing for many months in oak barrels, it is aged for a few years in the bottle to reveal its complex bouquet and allow the tannins to soften, while maintaining its freshness.
Flavor Characteristics
Deep red color with violet hues. Complex aromas of dark fruits, with dominant notes of cherries and blackberries, combined with hints of pepper, vanilla, tobacco, chocolate, and leather. Rich in flavor with robust but refined tannins, a very nice balance of acidity, alcohol and density of fruit, and a persistent spicy aftertaste.
