|The red wines of Greece are really just beginning to make serious headway into the wine markets in America. Some of the reds come from islands, but my focus today is a indigenous varietal called Limnio. This grape is grown mostly in the Sithonia Peninsula. The Limnio we are working with is from one of the largest vineyards in Greece; Porto Carras. This famous resort has a 450 hectare vineyard in the area know as Sithonia; the middle of the three legs extending out into the sea.
Great wine from one of the most ancient grapes in the world. This grape is widely held to be to be the Limnio grape described by Aristotle as a speciality of Limnos! This wine is delicious, with strong red fruit and a lot of complex spice of cinnamon, pepper and bay leaf. Perfect with "greek" food, grilled meats and fish; and intense sauces and rich breads. A fun wine to drink, perfect in weight and complex in flavor. Drink some history! – Ben Wood | Wine Buyer
