Karavitakis Winery Elia Sangiovese 75cl

Among the best Sangiovese from outside Italy!Sangiovese comes from the privately-owned vineyards of the estate, in Pontikiana of Chania. After great care in the vineyard, and insistence on the perfect phenolic ripeness of the grape, follows careful vinification of the precious juice. Then the wine matures in French oak barrels for about 11 months. Only 20% are new barrels while the rest are of second and third use. The reason for this is because they do not want to overshadow the delicate and aromatic character of this special variety. And if you ask us, they do it perfectly!
