About This Project

Tasting notes
Deep purple color, with aromas of ripe red fruits and spices, a full body, mild, silky tannins and a pronounced acidity. A wine with an aging potential of more than 10 years, which develops a unique character over time.

Harmony
Ideally suited to game or lamb, pasta in red sauce and yellow hard cheese.

The very rare red grape of Mouhtaro is grown exclusively in the area of Askri, at the foot of Helicon mountain, in Central Greece. Muses Estate was he first winery to revive this variety thanks to the efforts of Athanasios Zacharias. It is grown on sandy-loam soils, at an altitude of 450-550 m, following a long tradition which passes from one generation to the next.
