Vibrant red-violet with garnet highlights, this wine has a rich bouquet of aromas of red fruit, blackberry, cassis and Mediterranean herbs followed by vanilla and elegantly woody notes. While in the mouth, it reveals a medium body and a moderate level of velvety tannins. It ends on a pleasantly long finale. This wine can be appreciated immediately upon its release, but becomes more complex after four to six years of aging in the bottle. The wine “Augoustiatis” is for people with knowledge of international wines or just wanting to discover new worlds.
