Tsigello is called the original grape expression of the Mavrodaphne variety. Here we meet it in its dry version, with a frisky violet colour and an intensively aromatic profile. Its aromas evolve in time and bring out notes of red fruits, laurel, vanilla and local greek herbs. It is a fresh non filtered wine whose well processed tannins occurred from a brief passage from hand-turned clay amphorae while its balanced structure comes from its passage from oak barrels.

Grape variety:
Mavrodaphne 100%
Tsigello is the name of the most qualitative clone of the variety.

Vineyards:
The vineyards are cultivated on the mountainous Slopes of Aigialeia
in northern Peloponnese (650 m above sea level). These slopes are
north-facing and their soil is mostly sand and clay on a geologic
background of cohesive conglomerates with sand. The yields are
60hl/ha.

Winemaking process:
The grapes were harvested at the begin of September, after systematic
control of their ripening, in small crates and they came immediately to our
gravity- flow winery. The grapes were cooled down and stayed with the
skins for 3 days. Then, a classic red controlled fermentation and the
malolactic fermentation followed. Finally, the wine passed for three months
by French oak barrels and hand-turned amphoras. Unfiltered.

Tasting notes:
It is a unique and powerful mavrodaphne wine. The typical
aromas of the variety are present with red berries and laurel
aromas combined with pepper, rosemary, cinnamon, coffee and
cocoa. It is a full-bodied wine with a strong structure and a long
aftertaste.
