This constitutes the basic wine of the company. It is produced using Refosco and Mavrodaphne grapes. It
is distinguished by its deep red color, the perfumes of red fruits, with hints of chocolate and coffee, in
harmony with the vanilla and cinnamon from the wood. With a medium, but structured body, and full,
but fine tannins, the wine goes well with roasted red and white meats, casseroles with tomato sauce and
with hard cheeses. The wines that are distributed have been matured for 10-12 months in French oak
barrels and have rested for at least 6 months in the bottle. The annual production is approximately
40,000 bottles and the wine can be kept for 5-8 years.
