MANTEIO RED
Cabernet Sauvignon, Μavroudi
Protected geographical location Parnassus

The magic of the ancient land, where the cultivation of Argyriou vineyards is carried out, is demonstrated with MANTEIO (oracle). A wine produced from the local Greek variety Mavroudi and the international Cabernet Sauvignon.

Deep red color with complex aromas of red fruits and notes of chocolate, coffee and oak compose a dynamic wine.   Mature tannins and impressive density create conditions for long aging.

Winemaking / Aging

After the grapes are harvested in 15 kg cages, the healthy grapes are carefully sorted. From there they are taken to the smelter (in the absence of a crusher) and then vinified separately due to the different degree of ripeness that each variety has.  Cabernet ferments at high temperatures 26-28ºC in order to achieve the best color intensity while Mavroudi at 18-22 ° C to maintain the maximum aromatic potential of the variety. Aging in French oak barrels follows.
