An exceptional, round, well-balanced wine of ruby color and sweet aromas with hints of new oak, plum, and cinnamon. Its velvety taste is complemented by a subtle aromatic aftertaste. Enjoyed best next to red meat dishes with sweet vegetables and full, fat cheeses.
The Boutari Winery, founded in 1879 by Yiannis Boutari, has been an important selling white wine in Greece and a virtual unknown in the United States. That was until Tony Terlato discovered it in a blind tasting at Paterno Wines International's corporate headquarters. From his first sip he believed this little gem, so rich in flavor, was a secret just waiting to be discovered in the United States. Boutari Nemea is produced from the noblest red variety in Southern Greece, Agiorgitiko.
