Product Description
ORGANIC RED WINE AOSQ* LIMNOS *Appellation of Origin of Superior Quality Alcoholic Strength: 12.5%vol Pleasant and ever so smooth, this wine, that bears an Appellation of Origin of Superior Quality (AOSQ) comes from the vineyards of Limnos. It is crafted from Limnio, a red grape variety indigenous to the island of Limnos. Aristotle's favourite, Limnio is considered one of the world's oldest grape varieties and has been thriving on the area's volcanic soils since ancient times. It is ruby-red and brilliant in colour. Its nose releases a refined aromatic bouquet with the fragrance of fresh, aromatic herbs prevailing and followed by hints of forest red fruits in a heavenly match with spice notes. The nose elements continue in the wine's well-structured body. Robust and rounded, it has a mild acidity and velvety tannins, leaving on the palate a sense of luxuriating indulgence. Enjoy it as a companion to light dishes in red sauces, grilled meats, and platters of deli cuts. Above all, enjoy it as the ideal companion to "Melichloro", Limnos' superb artisanal cheese.
