Savvatiano grape variety

Sort by Tags |

Savvatiano is a white grape variety, mainly cultivated in Attica and Central Greece. It is among the most widely planted varieties of the Greek vineyard and the key variety which has traditionally been used to make retsina. Savvatiano has little explored due to its indifferent performance until recently. Today, due to the continuous efforts of  Attica producers, Savvatiano is responsible for a palette of new wines and a modern version of retsina. The new and contemporary profile of the grape variety possesses distinct aromas of yellow fruit and freshly cut grass, a round mouth, and a well-balanced presence.
