Liatiko – Red wine – Rethymno

Vinification:  The grapes are pressed after removing 90% of stems. The wine is fermented with Indigenous yeasts at 22°C. 50% of fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks, whilst the remaining 50% in 3rd use barrels for 8 months. During maturation, Cretan music is played for the wine, a vital step in the vinification process in the region.  The wine remains unfiltered and is bottled with very low sulphite use.

Liatiko is the most characteristic variety of the Cretan vineyard. Soft with an unstable color, this wine has a slightly rustic character, tannins gradually build in the mouth with a balanced acidity but excellent complexity, with notes of dried fruits and mediterranean herb that will captivate you.

Pairs well with light fish dishes  and pasta, or by itself.
