Grampsas Allegro Red 2017
Red | Zakynthos | Ionian Islands | 12.5% ABV| 750ml
Avgoustiatis is a little known red grape variety found originally around the Ionian islands (more notably on Zakynthos) and the western part of the Peloponnese peninsula, from where it has made its way to a further two Aegean islands about 15 years ago. Following this purposeful and creative migration of the grape, we now have distinguished bottlings coming from these two most recent plantings on the islands of Tinos and Samos. The variety ripens relatively early in the growing season and harvested typically in August, where the name of the grape comes from the grape of August.
