Why do we love it?

The distinct, emblematic and chic label of Assyrtiko Barrique 2019 from Ktima (domaine) Ligas, with Maria Callas on it, is in perfect harmony with the complex and impressive content of the bottle. The symbolism behind this choice is that as Callas lived and excelled abroad, Assyrtiko is also making a brilliant international career.

Behind this wine is the beloved Ligas family. Thomas Ligas together with his daughter Melisanthi, are constantly experimenting with new techniques based on mild natural vinification. Their philosophy can be summarized as follows: permaculture *, zero interventions in wine, no sulfites, no commercial yeasts. Assyrtiko Barrique 2019 is an Assyrtiko that ferments with indigenous yeasts and matures in old, large, oak barrels for 8-12 months. It is bottled unfiltered and the result is exuberant, velvety but also elegant as it was the voice of Maria Callas.

Such a diamond could only be bottled in a strictly limited number of bottles (just 2000), so if you have not tasted it yet, now it's the time!

 

*Permaculture takes its name from permanent agriculture and concerns a way of cultivation that ensures a life cycle. In simple terms, the cultivation of the vine does not compete with nature but works with her for the purpose of sustainability and viability of the environment.
