Cretan (Greek) grape variety Liatiko - Grape Liatiko from Crete, Greece
Cretan variety grown especially in Heraklion and Lassithi and is used in the production of wines “Dafnes PDO” and “Sitia PDO”.
It is used for the production of dry and sweet wines as well.
Sweet wines are made naturally by sun-dried Liatiko grapes and not by adding alcohol.
Because of this sun exposure, sweet wines have great aromatic intensity of ripe sweet fruits like figs and raisins.Cretan variety Liatiko gives us wines with relatively low colour intensity but intense nose of rich, ripe red fruits and sweet spices. Full body with soft tannins.
