Regional Wine of Atalanti Valley
Origin: The expression of Merlot grape variety from two different vineyards, part of the private owned vineyard of the Hatzimichalis Estate, with particular characteristics. The two vineyards differ in terms of age, altitude, gradient and orientation.

Tasting notes: A Merlot with vibrant fruit character. Bright, ripe black cherry, raspberry andplum aromas combined with subtle notes of mocha. Pleasantly soft and juicy with balanced flavors, supple texture and well-rounded tannins. Enjoy it now or keep it for at least 6 years from its harvest.
Food pairing - Serving temperature: It’s especially delicious with lasagna, pizza, roast
duck or roasted
chops, and wild mushroom risotto. Best served at 61°F / 16°C.
