“This is a light approach to savatiano, which can often give heavy, low-acid wines from central Greece. Here, there is elegant lift to the wine as it expands from a stony entry to citrus and stone-fruit flavors. Notes of white pepper fuse with a subtle, electric acidity on the finish of this uncommonly complex wine from Attica, Athens’ peninsula.” — Wine & Spirits, Sep 2023
