Kotsifali grape variety

Sort by Tags |

Kotsifali is a red grape variety which can be considered as the real soul of Crete. It produces wines low in color, intense on aromas, relatively high in alcohol, soft in tannins and acidity. Kotsifali is often blended with Mandilaria adding roundness, tannic grace and aromatic expression. It is grown all over Crete, but the best wines come from the area of Heraklion. Kotsifali produces a full, rich style for wine lovers who enjoy reds with no hard edges. Kotsifali blends are very food-friendly wines, perfectly suited for rich meat dishes, casseroles, sausages, and hearty roasts.---> Read more...
