2017 Gentilini 'Notes' Red
60% Agiorgitiko, 40% Mavrodaphne of Kefalonia.
All vinification and bottling are done at the Gentilini winery. The bunches are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation and extraction take place in open stainless steel vats. Pumping over in combination with delestage and punch-downs are done regularly to extract the desired color and flavor from the skins. The fermenting skins are then pressed and the juice completes alcoholic fermentation in vat. Malolactic fermentation is induced and the wine is then carefully blended. The wine is matured for 4 months in oak barrels before being aged for a further 6 months in bottle.
Gentilini Red is a fresh, complex wine with sour-cherry and spicy flavors, velvety tannins and long aftertaste.
