4 /5

The Kotsifali grape, grown in the 'Karnari' area, gave us a wine that brings forward the warmth of alcohol in sweet fruit and spicy notes, elements that reveal the long ageing in used barrels. The noble influence of oxygen, both in the wines aroma and flavor, is well integrated, providing complexity and stability to the wine.
