Organic Lemnos Red (PDO-Lemnos Island)

If there is a favorite wine of the Greek mythical god Hephaestus, it is definitely Limnio. Limnio was recorded as the oldest grape in the world and is the first species in the world to be recognized as a PDO (Protected Origin). This unique grape is derived from "Limnia Amperos" (an ancient name of the same kind) and has been cultivated from ancient times to the present in the volcanic soil of Limnos. It is the oldest wine even recorded in "Odyssey" by Homer, the most famous poet in ancient Greece. To add more ancient Greek celebrities, ancient Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle was his favorite wine.

Featuring a ruby hue, fresh red fruit, strong alcohol, refined and soft tannins, and a refreshing aftertaste. Chill down to 16 degrees and enjoy any snack, pie, or yellow cheese.

An intimate and delicate red wine with an aroma and the taste of fresh red fruit. It has a medium ruby color with a strong tannin in a medium body. A very fruity fragrance goes through your nose, and the taste of berries and spices and a little kumquat spreads over your mouth, leaving a long finish.
