Vinification and ageing : After the sun-drying period, the grapes are sent into a pneumatic press ferment in stainless steel tanks for another month. Following five years in the oak barrels and one year in the bottle, the wine is ready for the market.
Tasting notes: Pronounced aromas of raisins, complemented by the aromas dried figs and plums, sweet spices and coffee. Rich in the mouth with a long aftertaste.
Serving and Food Pairing: Liatiko should be served cold (4-6 °C ) as an aperitif or a dessert wine. We suggest you accompany it with dried fruits and nuts, fruit tarts and desserts with chocolate and coffee. Ideal for Montofoli granite, a recipe by our friend chef Jean-Pierre Xiradakis, and for Montofoli cocktails!
