Dry White Wine - PROTECTED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN SANTORINI

Santorini wine is produced from the unique native varietal of Assyrtiko carefully selected from the traditional vineyard of the island. The harvest begins in the middle of August. The grapes are brought to the winery, having been carefully placed in crates and baskets, never completely filled so as to avoid any damage that might occur during transportation. Only 25% of the grape juice is extracted. It is then placed in stainless steel tanks, where with a cold process it is separated from the lees. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at 16° C.

The result is a distinctive, dry white wine, characterized by a bright yellow-white color. On the nose delicate aromas of fruit – pear, lemon and pineapple – are present. On the palate, the wine is smooth, fruity and full-bodied. It has a balanced acidity and a long aftertaste.

An ideal accompaniment to seafood, pasta, white meat and cheese.
