Region

PGI Imathia,

The vineyard lies on an altitude of 280-300 meters. It is divided into 40 parts based on the soil properties, the relief and the different varieties-clones. The vineyard’s soil is representative of the different soil types of the Naoussa zone, dominated by sandy clay to sandy clay loam soils. The climate of the region is characterized by abundant rain and snow during winter and spring, and dry conditions in summer.  




Tasting Note

A wine with an intense red color, "two olives" 2010 displays pronounced aromas of strawberry, cherry and black pepper on the nose, combined with notes of vanilla and tobacco from oak aging. On the palate, the rich aromatic character balances with the lip-smacking acidity and the soft tannins, which are the signature trait of the 2010 vintage. The long finish, leaving red fruit and black pepper flavors in the mouth, underpins the charming and complex character of a wine that is ready to drink now, while it can still benefit from long bottle aging.
