The noblest indigenous variety of Greece, Agiorgitiko (Nemea grape Variety), in its fresh version… It is a bright full bodied wine with a deep red color and a velvety taste. Quite complex for a fresh wine, with soft tannins and attractive intense aromas of cherry, red berries and vanilla.
Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
