Old Monolithos Agiorgitiko

by Domaine Bairaktaris
Sold out

From a low intervention producer in Nemea, comes this 100% Agiorgitiko wine. Planted in the early 1970’s the vineyard is at high elevation (2,600 feet), on rocky soil full of minerals. The wine aged for 12 months in French Oak. The red, ruby colored wine opens up with a nose full of cherries, truffle, and chocolate. It is followed by a medium mouthfeel, while its silky tannins are balanced by medium acidity. The finish is long and very pleasing. Great on it’s own by the fireplace, but will be at home as well, with beef tenderloin, an herb crusted lamb roast and soft yellow cheeses. ABV 13.3%
