ALARGO  Red Dry wine

 

“Alárgo” means “far away”.


 

A warm and fruity 100% Syrah from Crete, a wonderful combination of Mediterranean and Cretan temperament. This wine has everything it takes to conquer the most discerning and sophisticated palate. Syrah variety has well adapted to the Cretan vineyard, fact which is proved by the love of the particular grape to the Mediterranean climate.


 

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 : 14,3% vol
Residual sugar: 4,0 gr/lt
Total acidity: 7,0 gr/lt
Total Sulfur: 110 mg/lt


 

750ml, 1.5lt, 3lt & 5lt


 

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


 

This wine is dark-red coloured, close to Tyrian red. It has a complex aromatic bouquet that is reminiscent of plum, dark cherry jam, vanilla, dried ham and dark chocolate. The wine has an overabundant flavour profile which –as time passes- becomes richer. It has a thick taste, with juicy tannins and a long lasting, spicy aftertaste.


 

Should be served at 17⁰C and would well accompany red meat with rich sauces, hunting, beef shank and the traditional Italian dish "osso buco". It would equally well accompany lobster cooked in red wine sauce or red tuna fillet, cooked on the grill.
