The label of Domaine Nostos Manousaki declared before the Greek premier red wine. It is a fact that is a product of painstaking and careful work by the best raw material, and this seems the perfect balance of flavors, tannins and acidity that characterizes it. Fans of good red wine should not miss the opportunity to know her.

Really interesting and well done wine .
Maybe need more Cretan personalty .He feels more the hand of oenologist and less the sun the earth and the salt of Crete. In my opinion as soon as the parties will reverse this will become a top wine.
