Vingårdene: Agiorgitiko Nemea region ,Peloponnese

Agiorgitiko is a captivating grape variety that caresses the senses with elegance, freshness and intensity of aromas and flavours. It is a red grape variety and is frequently referred to as “multidynamic”, since it is capable of producing a large range of styles, from refreshing rosés to concentrated sweet wines. However, the most common expressions are two: either as a young, unoaked red wine, or as a red matured in oak for at least a year.

A young Agiorgitiko is a wine with a moderately deep purple red colour, intense aromas of fresh red fruits, medium acidity and soft tannins. The oak aged examples are deep in colour, while the nose showing concentrated and complex aromas of red fruits. The palate is rich and, with high quality, ripe tannins. Moreover, it is a variety that can produce, other styles, like excellent rosés or stunning dessert wines from sun dried grapes. Many commentators use references to Sangiovese. Agiorgitiko is the grape of the PDO Nemea, the largest red wine appellation in Greece –and a quality leader as well. Traditionally, Nemea-Agiorgitiko are inextricably connected, as Agiorgitiko was only cultivated in Nemea and in its greater area. Nevertheless, the top quality potential convinced many producers to plant it in other areas, like Macedonia or other parts of Peloponnese.

Agiorgitiko is all about people looking for a wine proposal for moments of social contact and familiarity. It is a wine that offers gustatory satisfaction but also flexibility, since it can be very good to drink young and, at the same time, have the ability to age it for several years. It is also suitable to be matched with a large variety of dishes that are in line with modern nutritional schemes.
