Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Peloponnese

1/3 Agiorgitiko, 1/3 Syrah, 1/3 Mavrofilero

Each variety contributes with 1/3 to the wine. The Syrah ages on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks, the Agiorgitiko in Acacia barrels and the Mavrofilero
in egg shaped amphoras with skin contact for 4 months.
Peplo. A detail, that gave the name to the wine. The skin of the Mavrofilero is contained in a fabric within the amphora to allow a better control during the extraction process.
At the end of its maturation the fabric helps us to make the separation of the young wine from the skins. All vineyards are above 600m of altitude.
