Description

Liatiko Aggelis Red Dry Wine by Lyrarakis Winery

Liatiko Aggelis Red Dry Wine by Lyrarakis Winery is produced in Aggelis vineyard, planted on native rootstock of the Liatiko grape. This grape variety highlights the authenticity and wealth of eastern Crete. The low yields lead to small grapes, of exceptionally high berry density, which are then vinified, almost uncrushed, in small vats. Respect to natural micro-flora that defines fermentations, results in a rare wine, characterized by a self-sufficient flavor and aromatic fullness.

Liatiko Aggelis Red Dry Wine by Lyrarakis Winery has a light red colour, complex aromas of berry fruits and mature cherry. Balanced structure with fresh acidity and a firm intense aftertaste of round fruit tannins. Liatiko Aggelis is a very good accompaniment to grilled meats and cheese varieties.

The proper drinking temperature is 15 - 18 ° C.
 
*** <Pure and graceful, this has an elegant feel and pungent aromatics. There are red fruits on the nose, and they also follow through on to the palate. It tastes great, seems crisp and balanced, and it nishes well. The silky texture is appealing too. This looks poised to develop well—we'll see in time. It is worth leaning up today.>
 
The Liatiko Aggelis 2018 by Lyrarakis winery was reviewed by Mark Squires on Robert Parker's "Wine Advocate" scoring a 90-point rating!
