A wine which is produced and bottled by Estate Kir Yianni in selected contracted vineyards of the area of Agios Panteleimon, in the PDO zone of Amyndeon, Northwestern Greece The grapes are a variety of Xionomavro which is the noblest red grape variety of northern Greece.Attractive cherry color, complex aromas drifting with the strong effervescence of rich bubbles. Intense aromas of red fruits like cherry, strawberry and vanilla, enriched by notes of thyme, ripe tomatoes and bread crust. Mouth with volume and complexity, refreshing acidity and mild, balancing sweetness.
The grapes are sourced from the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon within the Amyndeon appellation in Florina, Northwestern Greece. The high altitude (600m) and the poor sandy soils of the area lead to the production of wines displaying finesse and a rare aromatic character. The four surrounding lakes that act as a buffer zone create perfect weather conditions for the cultivation of Xinomavro, more temperate than expected in this continental climate. The base wine stays on its lees and is frequently stirred for three months. The wine is characterized by bright color, velvety mousse, rich aromatic character, refreshing acidity, well-balanced sweetness and a long aftertaste. Brisk nose, sophisticated, with the bubbles to entrain red fruit flavors. Excellent pair with spicy dishes of the Asian cuisine, Mediterranean dishes based on vegetables and oily fish, like salmon. It can also be enjoyed as an aperitif or after a meal, as a dessert wine.
