Antàma

Red Dry Wine

Protected Geographical Indication Heraklion.

Organic

Grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon & Kotsifali.

Region: Yenniana (for Cabernet Sauvignon), Archanes (for Kotsifali).

Terroir: Altitude of 450-500 meters, non-irrigated mountainside vineyards, low-fertility argillo-calcareous soil, Royat pruning, yields of 45-52hl/ha. Vines of over 10 years old that produce a wine of very round body. Frequent northern winds that blow during summer create a cool environment, protecting them from the intense sunlight and high summer temperatures.

Oenology: Extraction in French oak tanks for 8-10 days, maturation for 12 months in French oak barriques (225lt), bottling immediately after so as to allow the red fruits aromas to emerge.

Name: Two different varieties join - a traditional Greek and an international one, who walk together “side by side” (=antàma) in harmony.

Personality: Deep red colour with purple reflections. Its delicate red fruit is gently touched by leather and liquorice notes. Taste of soft tannins, elegant acidity and pleasant aftertaste.
