Mountain vineyards, situated at an altitude of 700-800 m, surrounding the Mega Spileo vineyard. Harvest takes place in late September.
Blending of two varieties. Pre-fermentative extraction at low temperatures and alcoholic fermentation in small tanks. Part of the wine matures in new oak barrels for an additional 4 months.
Deep red colour with blue hues. Aromas of black fruits, with mild grassiness set against cocoa and vanilla. Pleasant density in the mouth with a velvety texture, rounded tannins and a fruity finish.
