CAVINO, NEMEA PDO RESERVE
Varieties: Agiorgitiko 100%
Protected Designation of Origin: Nemea
Type: Dry red wine
Vineyards: Sub-mountainous Nemea altitude 400 - 600 meters, small vineyards
Period of vine harvest: Mid-September 22 - 24 ° Brix
In the Winery: After delivery, the grapes are pressed and remain in the tank until the end of fermentation. Then, the fresh wine is brought down to the cellar for malolactic fermentation and maturation in French and American oak barrels. It remains there for about 14 months. It is then bottled and remains in bottles for at least 12 months.
Ageing Potential: It is ready to drink now, but the next 3 years will add complexity and finesse. Careful transfusion to carafe 1 hour prior to serving is highly recommended.
The character: Deep purple colour with vibrant red hues. Aromatic notes of red fruit syrup, lavender, and dark chocolate. Elegant, with good structure and soft tannins. The finish offers a long after-taste of roasted fruits. Ideal with red meat stews or cheese platters.
