From an Organic producer on the Island of Lefkada (Western Greece) comes this rare wine made by the indigenous Vertzami grape. The 30 year old vineyard, composed mostly of rocky limestone, produces very low yields (2.5-3 lbs/vine). During vinification, the wine ages 17 months in French Oak.  The result is a very dark red wine, with medium body, full of dark fruits, oak, and forest herbs. Tannin is pronounced, and although it's alcohol is relatively high, the mouthwatering acidity is balanced. The finish is long and persistent. Great on its own, or enjoy with pasta Bolognese, beef stews or a grilled NY Strip Steak . Produced by Siflogo Winery  ABV 14.2%
