STROUMBELI  Maratheftiko
Red Dry Wine
TASTING NOTES
Deep intense cherry red colour, elegant aromas full of fruit with a slight mintiness and varietal character combined with suspicions of smokey oak forming a well-integrated and complex nose.
Long palate, full and round, well balanced with silky smooth tannins.
The same aromas as on the nose, as well as some vanilla,that manifests the French Oak Barrel at the end-palate, create a harmonious wine that fully respects the grape variety and its region of origin.
