Nemea by Lantides Winery

Where does it come from?

Aged for 14 months in oak barrels. The color is bright, deep crimson. The nose reveals aromas of blackberries and ripe strawberries with just a touch of anise and spices such as clove and cinnamon. It is a medium bodied wine with graceful texture, balanced acidity and very ripe elegant tannins. The finish is moderately long, full of red fruits with a touch of sweet vanilla and black pepper. 

Can be cellared for 4 to 6 years.

The variety...

Agiorgitiko is a captivating grape variety that caresses the senses with elegance, freshness and intensity of aromas and flavours. It is a red grape variety and is frequently referred to as “multidynamic”, since it is capable of producing a large range of styles, from refreshing rosés to concentrated sweet wines. However, the most common expressions are two: either as a young, unoaked red wine, or as a red matured in oak for at least a year.

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.

The winery...

Lantides estate is a family winery established in 1993 by Lantides Panikos with a goal of promoting Greek quality wine. The climate and soil of Nemea attracted Panikos to cultivate fine varieties such as Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Moschofilero, Asyrtiko and MalagouziaAt his first 20 acres, he cultivated a white variety, Chardonnay, and a year later a red variety followed, Agiorgitiko, which was meant to be our mounting variety for the years coming. Our winery had a steady growth, with the production now reaching 200.000 bottles annualy and importing 50% of the production, mostly in USA, Canada, UK, Cyprus, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Today, Lantides winery is expanded to 170 acres of own vineyards and 50 more acres of collaborating ones.
