Agiorgitiko is a fragrant red-wine grape native to Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. It is one of the country's most widely planted wine grapes after Xynomavro, and goes by a number of local synonyms. Agiorgitiko is the sole variety permitted in the Nemea appellation and performs admirably well in the hot Mediterranean climate there.
Agiorgitiko by Gaia is a well-structured wine with intense ripe fruit aromas and well-integrated oak flavors. Under proper cellar conditions, it can be aged 2-4 years after release evolving into a velvety and more composite wine. Agiorgitiko by Gaia pairs best with red meat dishes that are rich, intense and spicy.
