Douloufakis 'Alargo' Assyrtiko

High altitude vineyards produce razor sharp focused, mineral assyrtiko in a richer style than Santorini. Mid-yellow, citrus scented, lovely mellow aromas with citrus peel and nice lemony acidity. There is richness and velvety texture in abundance with an extra level of richness that will go really well with spicy food and Japanese sushi.

Douloufakis Winery, Dafnes, Crete

The tradition and history of the Douloufakis family in vineyard cultivation and production started in 1930 when grandfather Dimitris Douloufakis first established a professional winery in the village of Dafnes in Crete. Today the business is continued by Dimitris’ grandson Nikos Douloufakis who, having studied oenology at Alba in Italy, has renewed the production of superior quality wines from his own vineyards. The Douloufakis Winery vineyards are situated on hilly slopes at an altitude of 350 metres. They cover 10 hectares and are located within the region of Dafnes. The vine varieties planted are Vilana, Vidiano, Muscat of Spina, Malvasia, Mandilari, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Liatiko, Kotsifali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Syrah. Apart from privately owned vineyards, grapes are sourced from local farmers who cultivate their own vineyards in the same area. Douloufakis are famous for the production of the single vineyard ‘Aspros Lagos’ Vidiano, as well as the PDO Liatiko red.
