Overview

Driopi Reserve is estate-grown in Driopi Estate from the sub-zone of Koutsi in Nemea. It comes from the 5-hectare single vineyard of the family, from 50-year-old vines at an altitude of 380 m. The long, 20-day extraction and 12-month maturation in new oak barrels have created a structured wine that retain unaltered the character of agiorgitiko: sweet aromas of sour cherries, vanilla, hazelnuts, red cherry and oak notes. Gentle mouth, medium (+) acidity, ripe, sweet tannins with roundness and aromatic sweetness. Very good structure on the palate and a great aftertaste. Winemaking includes chilling the grapes in reefers for 24h, crashing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks with maceration for  20 days and post fermentation maturation in oak barrels (20% bâtonnage).
