Personality: Endless notes of ripe fruits, herbal, lemony, honey-like notes, lingering finish. A real treat.

Vineyard: Sant’Andrea and Lucinico, clay and gravel. Vines are 90+ years old.

Making of: The grapes are hand-harvested, strictly sorted to keep only the healthiest and ripest bunches, and gently destemmed. The berries are placed in 240-liter clay amphorae from Crete (internally lined with Italian beeswax) and left on skins for 12 months. The wine is then bottled by gravity, without fining, filtration or sulfur addition, and spends a minimum of 12 more months in the bottle before being released.

Winemaker's Note: A meticulous selection of perfectly ripe and healthy bunches from the oldest Malvasia vines (more than 90 years old) that the Paraschos family farms. The berries are then macerated in Cretan amphora, in a nod to the family’s Greek roots.
