Product Description

Red on black is produced from collected grapes by the most traditional vineyards of the hills of Nemea. Produced from grapes which are exclusively picked from vineyards 30 years old and older producing very few quantities.The quantity which is produced from the vines is minimized from us in order to maintain the quality of the grape.

Wine making: It is used the typical procedure for red wines. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and then it is bottled after a soft filtration. It stays in French casks for about 12 months and after that it is bottled directly without filtering at all. Before it is released it stays in our cellar for 6 months in the bottle. Virtually no limit to aging which will continue to develop complexity until 15 years.

Tasting characteristics: A velvety red wine with red fruits, black pepper, cocoa and sour cherry jam in the nose. Soft tannins. A very smooth wine with a complexity coming from the wood, a smooth booket is also present in the nose. Black berry essence, textured sappy style. Spicy vanilla notes lifted by elegant, melt in the mouth tannins. It is a blend of +20 year old, mostly bush vines. It has good structure. Richly flavoured, with freshness keeping it interesting all through the finish. Polished.

Food pairing: To be matched with red and white meet, pasta with tomato, everyday meals and greek dishes. A very fruity wine from Nemea to be served a bit chilled.

The Mitravelas Estate is one of the oldest wineries in the winemaking appellation region of Nemea. The winery was founded in 1913. Since 2003 Konstantinos Mitravelas, who represents the third generation of the Mitravelas family, took over the estate’s management. Making good use of the family’s deep winemaking knowledge and experience, he followed very soon his vision: to be one of the top winemakers in the region.

The access in the best locations of Nemea, the cooperation with renowned wine-experts but also the modernisation of the winery’s facilities gave fruitful results, since the “Mitravelas Estate-V.Q.P.R.D. Nemea” is counted already as one of the top representatives of the famous Appellation.

In short-term, Konstantinos Mitravelas is planning to extend the winery (bigger wine cellars, tasting hall) but also to add a new brand to the range of wines, a rose Agiorgitiko. Sow he equipped the winery with the right equipment, sow the excellent knowledge of the vigne growing in combination with the new oenological techniques gave 2 exceptional wines.
