Description: The strongest variety of the Greek vineyard, hides rare virtues, giving wines with unique capabilities. This versatile variety is grown mainly in the Cyclades, it is based in Santorini, and secondarily, but with great results, in Northern Greece. It gives strictly chic wines, characterized by a mild-aromatic character, which, depending on the terrain and the area cultivated, not only has aromas of fresh citrus and yellow fruits, but also hints of tea leaves and mineral and metallic hues. It has a rich and full mouthsense, with minerality and alabaster acidity, characteristics that offer durability in time. This makes Assyrtiko, one of the few Greek white varieties that have the ability to evolve and emerge through aging. Assyrtiko is the main variety used in production of Vinsanto from Santorini, considered globally as one of the finest dessert wines.
