The revival of the vineyard Rapsani and the establishment as one of the most important in Greece is mainly due to Tsantalis Winery. The Grand Reserve is the leading expression of Rapsani, produced only for the very best vintages in limited quantities. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels and 18 months in the bottle, acquiring extremely rich character and robust structure and can comfortably be aged for at least a decade yet. It is no coincidence that it is amongst the 100 best wines of the world for 2015 by Wine & Spirits.
OR
The color is dark red, with some brick red hues to make their appearance. The aromatic character is intense, complex and still quite fresh. Aromas of red and black fruits such as raspberry and cherry, tomato, herbs, nuts and subtle hints of leather. Rich and concentrated in the mouth, with several, but velvety tannins and a finish that lasts for a long time leaving a vanila feel.

Η άποψη των κριτών του Wine & Spirits Magazine
(κατάταξη στα κορυφαία 100 κρασιά του 2015)
"Από τα υψηλότερα αμπελοτόπια του Τσάνταλη, σε υψόμετρο 500 μέτρων και άνω, αυτό το κρασί φαίνεται απίθανα νεαρό για κρασί του 2009. Το φρούτο είναι ζωηρό, η οξύτητα δίνει μια εντυπωσιακή φρεσκάδα στις γεύσεις μάυρου βατόμουρου και κερασιού. Οι νότες χόρτων φαίνονται πραγματικές, σαν πνοή του δάσους που έρχεται με τον άνεμο. Εκεί που η ηλικία είναι εμφανής, είναι στις τανίνες, που είναι λεπτεπίλεπτες, κρατώντας σταθερό το κρασί ενώ διατηρούν την κομψότητά του. Μια εντυπωσιακή επιδειξη δύναμης και χάρης, αυτό το κρασί θα πρέπει να παλαιώσει καλά για τουλάχιστον την επόμενη δεκαετία..."
