Paterianakis 2018 Domaine Red (Crete) ORGANIC
It has an impressively sanguine nose, while the palate nods to both Bordeaux and Italy while settling in the end to an authentically Cretan identity, appropriate to this ancient culture. As a vertical tasting proved, it is a long-distance runner, gaining refinement and salinity as it ages.
80% Kotsifali and 20% Mandilari
For each variety separately, Careful grape selection, destemming, transfer of grapes using gravity, without mechanical means, to stainless steel vats for maceration and fermentation.
