Sitia

Economou, Sitia, 2004

RRP N/A in UK

The absolute cult Greek wine from Yiannis Economou. Liatiko with a splash of tannic Mandilari released whenever the producer thinks it is ready. Very light garnet-brick. Fragrant with blood orange, red cherry, noble leather and dried flowers. On the palate still firm, exciting with a long finish. A very elegant and idiosyncratic wine speaking of its place of origin and the passion of its producer. A cross of an aged Barolo and a Sicilian Nerello Mascalese.
