Domaine Sigalas MM (Mavrotragano & Mandilaria) – Santorini
Deep, crimson color with violet hues. Ripe red fruit on the nose with aromas of spice. Flavors similar to those on the nose with mild tannins and balanced acidity. This is a gorgeous, scented red blend of Mandilaria and Mavrotragano from 60-year-old vines, vinified and aged for 18 months in oak barrels. With tannins supple as chamois-leather gloves, the acidity flashes with light and angles, like diamonds cupped in the palm. The fruit is ruby-jeweled. It is dark cherries and tobacco, a smudge of ground coriander and cinnamon adding spice to the sweetness. It has the tang of pomegranates and wild cherries.
