Dry, Still, Red, Mavrodafni, Keep for 2-3 years
Theodora Rouvali, second generation of the Rouvali winery has taken over the reins and creates wonderful wines with a focus on highlighting the terroir of Egialia. Tsigelo is called the highest quality clone of Mavrodafni and here we have an exceptional dry expression of the variety of vineyards at an altitude of 650 meters. The wine that has matured for a few months in handmade clay amphorae, is distinguished for its freshness, the purity of the fruit and the gentle tannins. It is a red wine that can easily accompany fish dishes.
Its color is medium violet. The expressive aromas of red fruits such as cherry and helmet in combination with the notes of laurel, herbs and chocolate create a multidimensional aromatic profile. Its taste is velvety with cool acidity, fruit intensity and lasting aftertaste.

|Producer's Description||Leaving the plain for the mountain slopes of Aegialia, the quality and indigenous Tsigelo is radically refreshed and abandons its sweet perspective, to offer here an irresistible dry wine with earthy and full elegance, which immediately gained international recognition. Wine with mild interventions, the deep red Tsigelo matures in handmade clay amphorae, softening its tannins, and evolves in the unfiltered bottle, acquiring aromas of rosemary, laurel and eucalyptus.|
