Characteristics: “Black cubed” is the name we have given to this wine, which resulted from the harmonious blending of three of the most important red (or black, as normally called) grape varieties, the indigenous Agiorgitiko and Mavrodaphne and the cosmopolitan Merlot. This unique combination of the three varieties results in a wine with a complex bouquet of black fruits, chocolate, cherry marmalade, plum and cinnamon. A full-bodied and rich in the mouth wine, with an excellent structure, which is characterised by soft tannins and a long aftertaste, dominated by black fruits, spices and vanilla.
