Medium (+) intensity ruby color deep for the standards of the variety, with a bouquet dominated by red fruits like cherry and strawberry jams, spices, licorice and vanilla. In the mouth characteristic acidity and tight wild tannins which probably need time to soften. Rather than wait, match it with a juicy steak and enjoy it now.

The VISSA wine has been produced from fully ripe organic farming
Xinomavro grapes from our 10 y.o. family owned single
vineyard named "PaleoKastra"(means the old castle)-"Vissa"
at the time of Homer. Multicloned low yield Xinomavro
vines are growing in low fertility limestony-clay soils with
almost 30% active Ca+2. The 2009 growing season may be
described as a cold winter(provided plenty of rainfall deposit
water), a cool to cold healthy spring and a cold summer
one without heat picks. All these annual elements led to
concentrated fruit with high level of fully matured medium
grained tannins. It was vinified in 35hl stainless steel tanks,
undergone full of malolactic transformation and matured
14 months into 70% new oak of which 50% 228l, 50% 400l,
20% 2nd use 225l and 10% 3rd use 225l. The VISSA wine
is physically stabilised.
