Rapsani Reserve is vinified with equal proportions of hand picked Xinomavro, Stavroto and Krassato grapes. These grapes come from the south eastern slopes of Mount Olympus Sub-Zone B at an altitude of 250 to 500 meters. Xinomavro contributes high acidity, tannins and colour, while Stavroto adds structure and balance and Krassato adds some spice and floral aromas. The wine is aged in 300L French oak barrels (50% new – 50% second and third fill) for at least 12 months and also ages for at least 12 months in the bottle. This helps softens tannins and helps integrate the wine.
Rapsani Reserve has an aromas of juicy blackberries and plums elegantly infused with spices, hints of leather and liquorice. The intense deep purple color highlights the rich palate with firm tannins and balanced acidity.
