Kotsifali Cinque Selection

Where does it come from?

Classic red wine vinification at low temperature at
the beginning of the extraction, frequent pumping over and maceration for 15 days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation in French and American oak barrels for 6 months. Can be cellared for 5-8 years.

Deep red with brownish highlights. Aromas of dry plum, ripe red fruit and vanilla. Rich body with velvet tannins and barrel flavors of vanilla and cocoa.

The variety...

Kotsifali (pronounced koh-tsee-fah-lee) is the benchmark red variety of the celebrated vineyards of Crete, defining the style of the dry reds coming out of one of the most significant wine-producing regions of the Aegean Sea. Since red grapes are much more important on the island than whites, Kotsifali can be considered as the main grape of Crete.

Discover the unique character of the grape by choosing one of Cinque’s wine tastings or enjoy it by the glass at wine bars in Athens.
