Why do we love it?

Robola and Cephalonia in general, claim their place in the wine map by looking Assyrtiko straight in the eyes. The Ionian island with its great history in winemaking, makes, perhaps, the most dynamic comeback of all times.

For years, Petrakopoulos Winery has been experimenting with various vinification techniques, trying different approaches to the Cephalonian varieties that seem to appreciate it. Robola of Petrakopoulos Winery from Theramonas redefines the variety with a different approach that fully expresses the character and the terroir in which it is grown.

This delicate expression of Robola gives lessons of finesse and balance that will make you fall in love with her.

It has pale lemon color with light greenish hues.

Nose of moderate aromatic intensity with notes of white citrus flowers, green almond, juicy ripe pear, peach and bergamot. A feeling of wet stone reveals the mineral character of the variety.

On the palate it is medium - bodied, with crisp acidity that gives nerve and duration. White peach and citrus aromas such as lemon and lime are leading. Slightly floral elements but also a more intense mineral character follows. The pleasant citrusy aftertaste it is left in the mouth for a while.
