Should be served cool, at 10°C. Pair it with fatty dishes, like a creamy spaghetti carbonara, as the acidity balances the fat taste. Try it with fried fish like cod or bass in the oven.

Alargo White Tasting Notes

Tasted in Country Tasted by Published on Vintage Wine tasting notes
2023 U.S.A. Emily Saladino, Writer, Editor & Recipe Developer 2020 From a small producer in the hills south of Crete's capital, Herakleion, comes this elegant, light-bodied sipper with balanced notes of lemon juice and zest that are followed by a pleasantly acidic finish. Pair with crudité, grilled fish or tofu, or nothing at all.
2021 U.S.A. Mark Squires, Wine Journalist 2016 The 2016 Alárgo Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14.4% alcohol. When last seen, this looked promising. It shows great today. The reductive nuances have blown off, leaving a tightly wound white with a lingering finish. The finish is very fruity, giving it almost a sweet edge, to the point where I wondered whether this had any modest wood treatment. Overall, it's lovely, though, an expression of Assyrtiko that is a bit different, but still very good.
2018 U.S.A. Mark Squires, Wine Journalist 2016 The 2016 Alárgo Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14.4% alcohol. No price was set at this time. I've been increasingly seeing fine Assyrtiko off of Santorini, not that anyone is challenging the grandeur of the top wines there. Up to a point, this is another. Ripe, concentrated and chock full of fruit, this is pretty delicious. Lush, it tastes great and finishes well, with reasonable tension. It will be interesting to see how it develops, too. Therein lies the quibble—it has a smoky nuance I could do without, perhaps a touch of reduction. It came out as the wine aired and warmed. If that blows off, as it often does, this might be entitled to an uptick. Even now, it is pretty nice.
