Douloufakis Liatiko grape natural wine

"Amphora Liatiko" Red
Douloufakis Natural wine

Raw wine | Orange | Food wine

Red colour with maroon highlights, relatively clear. The wine may show a thin layer of sediment, as it has not been filtered. It was fermented and matured in amphoras, which contributed to bringing out the original aromas of the variety, and developing simultaneously wonderful aromas of oxidative ageing. Skin contact lasted more than 40 days providing the wine with rich tannic structure, while the slow exchange of oxygen from the amphora's pores provided it with a rich texture. Earthy aromas and noticeable minerality. Dried plum, fig and a blend of herbs of Cretan land, a special characteristic of the variety. In the mouth taste of maraschino cherry, black and red berries, intense tannins, but also fresh acidity.

Protected Geographical Indication "CRETE"



"LIATIKO AMPHORA" was launched in 2016. Cretan amphoras have been excavated all over the Mediterranean area.
