Tsantali Rapsani PDO Xinomavro-Krassato-Stavroto

Intense, slightly closed aromas, this wine should be decanted to let it be enjoyed at its best. Ripe, red berry fruit interwoven with leather and vanilla spice and some gentle tannin and crispness. This has a huge breadth of rich rope tawny, burnished fruit flavours with clever hints of dancing acidity that gives it a lift. Powerful enough to handle rich spicy meat and fish dishes, including Asian spice.
