“Agiorgitiko is the red grape of Nemea, making silky smooth, fruit-packed reds with a velvety finish. This cuvŽe shows intense aromatic finesse evolving from ripe berries and gooseberry through to caramel and discreet oak nuances. Soft tannins underline a rich, well structured velvety body.”
“- Agiorgitiko by Gaia is a well-structured wine with intense ripe fruit aromas and well-integrated oak flavours.
- Under proper cellar conditions, it can be aged 2-4 years after release evolving into a velvety and more composite wine.”
“Quite deep red color. Cherry aroma in a background of vanilla and wood from the barrel. Mouth rich and well-structured, with vivid and slightly rough tannins. Finishing with duration and a light pleasant bitterness.”
Soft red fruit and toasty oak, black cherries and red fruits balanced with the oak. A lovely velvety finish with great structure and length.
