«Ariousios Glikazon», red semisweet, 750 ml
This semi-sweet wine is produced from the local variety Chiotiko krassero, grown on the slopes of the Amani Mountains at the NW part of Chios Island.
Keeping the tradition of the famous «Kourouniotiκο wine», excellent quality grapes are spread in sunlight, so as to achieve a natural sweetness. It is fermented at controlled low temperature.
The maturation in oak barrels in the cellar of Ariousios, in natural wet and cold environment, enables this special sweet wine to be aged in the bottle for several years.
While on the island is quite customary to accompany meals, because it is our traditional wine, this is a wine that can be served as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to desserts (especially chocolate desserts). However, diners who have tried it, recommend it to accompany meat or poultry with red sauces (e.g. stew, rooster cooked in wine) and even a plate with ripe yellow cheeses and meats.
«Ariousios Glikazon» is a wine maturing and rippening more while left in the bottle in a cool and dark environment. It reveals rich aromas when served chilled and not cold.
The combination of the sunshine and the breeze of the Aegean Sea give excellent results, as the grapes are spread to dry under the sun. Red color with brick reflections, aromas of dried fig and plum, raisin and vanilla, rich mouth with beautiful balance between sweet and acidity and a long aftertaste.
