Why do we love it?

Diagon Vertzami Cuvée Spéciale from Markoyanni Winery is a very impressive wine. Its ruby color that almost paints the glass and the rich concentration of its fruit, has left us speechless. Its new bottling has spent even more time in the barrel and its complexity cannot be defined!

Diagon Vertzami Cuve Speciale is a very special wine from the rare variety Vertzami, from Lefkada island. According to many, it is very difficult to handle variety with enough acidity, tannins, and very, very intense color (it is one of the most colorful varieties in Greece). With mastery in winemaking, however, it can produce truly impressive wines. And Diagon Vertzami Cuve Speciale from Markoyanni Winery is one such.

The concentrated juice, after fermentation, is aged in French oak barrels for 24 months, long enough to tame the tannins and its beastly character. The wine is bottled unfiltered and the result is extremely charming and balanced.

Now you should make it yours because, in a few years, it will belong to the pantheon of the top Greek wines and will be a collector's item...

In the glass, it is a deep ruby.

Intense nose with generous doses of blueberry jam, cherry, sour cherry, raspberry, lavender, violet, and eucalyptus. Hints of vanilla, cinnamon, black pepper, and oak complete the complex ensemble.

In the mouth, it has a full body with refreshing acidity and moderate but juicy tannins. Aromas of sour cherry, gooseberry, vanilla, cinnamon, green pepper, cocoa, and violet fill the mouth with every sip. Spicy finish that lingers.

DIAGON VERTZAMI CUVEE SPECIALE 2020 - MARKOGIANNI WINERY

PAIR IT

Pair it with braised veal, wild boar with plums, and ragout veal cheeks.

Willd boar with vinsanto and citrus

1500 gr. wild boar


For the marinade
500 ml. wine vintage
200 ml. Red wine
1½ tablespoons of honey
3 tablespoons of balsamic
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon corn flour
2-3 rinds of tangerines, oranges, grapefruits, bitter orange
1 sprig of rosemary
2-3 cloves
4 berries of all spice
1 teaspoon of mixed peppercorns
Taragon
2 onions
80 gr. butter
Salt

For the marinade:
Wash and clean the wild boar very well, and remove any hairs.
In a pot, put all the ingredients of the marinade and mix well. Place the pieces of wild boar inside.
Cover with a towel and leave either in the fridge or in a cold, dry environment. Let the wild boar marinate for at least 12 hours.


Cooking:
Remove the meat from the marinade and keep it aside.
Put a large casserole to high heat and saute the meat.
Do not put any oily substance because the meat will release some liquids.
Once the liquids evaporate, add the butter and saute the meat until it gets an even, brown color.
Add the onions finely chopped or crushed. Once the onions get a golden color, pour in the marinade.
Lower the fire. Add salt and about 2 cups of hot water.
Braise the wild boar until the sauce thickens and the meat is tender.
Serve with brown rice with added pine nuts and raisins.
