SANGIOVESE Red Dry wine

 

The winemaker draws his inspiration for this blend – consisting of Sangiovese (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) - from Italy, where he studied Enology. The sun and the heat of the Mediterranean climate not only offer maturity and volume to this wine, but also give it a Cretan twist and character.


 

In the area of Dafnes, near Heraklion (Crete), at 350 metres above sea level.


 

Classic red vinification in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation takes place at 24° C to 28° C.


 

The wine matures in French oak barrels for twelve months. We use new, second and third use barrels.


 

Alcohol : 13,7% vol
Residual sugar: 1,7 gr/lt
Total acidity: 5,8gr/lt
Total Sulfur: 135 mg/lt


 

750ml


 

This wine is capable of ageing for up to ten years.


 

Mild spicy notes, enhanced by subtle nuances in taste calling to your mind the scent of tobacco, cherry, dark chocolate and Cretan herbs. Dense structure with velvet tannins. A complex black-fruit-dominated palate and long aftertaste.


 

Should be served at about 17° C and is best enjoyed with red meat, game, rich sauce or hard yellow cheese.
