This rosé wine is produced from the Bordeaux grape variety Cabernet Sauvignon and the Agiorgitiko grape, which is widespread in Greece. Granatus has an intense color reminiscent of the interior of a ripe pomegranate thanks to a longer maceration. On the nose, we find the delicate aromas of flowers accompanied by small red fruits and green pepper, so that they demonstrate a complex and unique bouquet. In the mouth, the taste of wild strawberries is present, as well as that of cherries. A go-anywhere wine that goes well with many dishes.
