Why do we love it?
Limnio by Aslanis winery is a red wine with complex character and impressive finesse. One of the oldest varieties in the world gives its best in the hands of Laskaris Aslanis.

Aslanis Winery is a family business since every member of the family has its position and role from production to marketing and accounting. The privately-owned vineyards of the estate are spread on a beautiful piece of land in Nea Michaniona, Thessaloniki, and are organically cultivated. Laskaris's passion is hidden in every wine of the estate and Limnio is one of his strong assets. The perfect ripening of the grapes is followed by careful vinification with short extraction and aging for 8 months in oak barrels. This is the reason for the elegance of the wine and the purity of the red fruit that characterizes it.

Limnio by Aslanis Winery wants to be a bit chilled, but then it is ready for everything, from tuna to beef!

LIMNIO 2018 - ASLANIS WINERY

PAIR IT

with meat in red sauce, bbq dishes or hunts.

Beef Ragout with matsata pasta and kalathaki of Limnos cheese

  • 1 pack of matsata pasta
  • 100 g of Lemnos basil cheese
  • 1200 g beef (for stew)
  • 2 tbsps. flour
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 big carrot
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 4-5 shallots
  • 200 ml. red wine
  • 350 ml. hot beef stock
  • 250 gr. concassed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • Parsley
  • Fresh pepper
  • Olive oil

Wash and dry the meat well using absorbent paper.

Cut into smaller pieces, sprinkle with flour and sauté in a deep saucepan with olive oil until golden brown. Do not sauté them all together to maintain the high pot temperature. Do it partially and keep the meat warm in another utensil.

At the same time, clean and chop onions, carrot and garlic. Sauté them into the pot that you roasted the meat.

Pour in the red wine, keeping a high temperature, and with a wooden spoon "scrape" the saucepan to get all the "deliciousness" from the meat.

Then transfer the meat back to the saucepan with the sauce, add tomatoes, herbs, sugar and pepper.

Lower the fire, add the broth and let simmer for about 3 hours without forgetting to control the fluids after 2.5 hours.

The sauce must be rich and thick, so remove from the heat, when the liquids are still sufficient. Of course, keep in mind that it will thicken as it cools down.

When the beef is ready, add a little chopped parsley and prepare the pasta.

In a pot with plenty of boiling water, add a little salt and then, the pasta. When they are ready, drain them and transfer them back to the pot. Add about half of the sauce and a little chopped parsley, mix well and serve.

In the serving, add more sauce to each dish and crumbled cheese.
