Description: Agiorgitiko, often hailed as the noblest grape variety of the Peloponnese region, holds a significant place in Greek viticulture. Originating primarily from Nemea, this red grape variety has expanded its cultivation to other parts of Greece, including Attika and Macedonia. It's a multidynamic grape, capable of producing not just red wines but also rosés and even concentrated dessert wines.

The wines produced from Agiorgitiko are deeply red in color, usually soft and fruity and often high in alcohol content, ranging between 11.5–13.5% ABV. Agiorgitiko wines possess a rich structure, filled with tannins and medium acidity, making them both flavorful and complex. Some even carry subtle flavors of spices including nutmeg and cinnamon, adding an extra layer of complexity.

When it comes to aging, Agiorgitiko wines offer flexibility. Young reds, characterized by a moderately deep purple-red hue and intense aromas of fresh red fruits, can be enjoyed almost immediately. Those matured in oak barrels for a short time have the potential to age in the bottle for up to five years. They combine the grape's juicy fruitiness with good levels of freshness and complexity. For those looking for long-term aging, some wines are matured for several months in oak barrels, gaining a firm tannic structure and revealing complex aromas of red fruits, sweet spices and even chocolate.

Agiorgitiko wines are not just about taste; they're also about the experience. They are best served in oversized glasses at temperatures between 60–68°F. If you're planning to store them, know that they can be cellared for over 10 years. When it comes to food pairing, these wines are incredibly versatile. They go wonderfully with a range of dishes, from roasted meats and tomato sauces to spiced cuisines from the Middle East to India.

In summary, Agiorgitiko is more than just a grape variety; it's a symbol of Greek wine culture, offering a range of styles and experiences for both the casual drinker and the wine connoisseur.
