A rare native red grape variety from the island of Santorini, full of character and complexity.
On the ancient plain of Oia, in the island of Santorini, the winery of Domaine Sigalas can be found. Here, the most vibrant variety of the Mediterranean zone, the Santorini Assyrtiko as well as the Aidani, Athiri, Mandilaria and the Mavrotragano are put to the best use possible, and with the proper respect to their organoleptic characteristics, the quality wines are produced which receive acclaim in international competitions, both in Greece and abroad.
Typical red vinification techniques, fermentation and ageing in in French oak barrels for 18 months.
Tasting Note: Deep ruby colour, ripe black fruits on the nose with well balanced oak elements. Full bodied with high tannins and acidity. With age vines exceeding 50 years this is a wine that will benefit from extended ageing.
