Kir-Yianni Kali Riza

Born in an outstanding year for Xinomavro, the 2011 Kali Riza showcases all the character of the Amyndeon terroir in its best expression. Intense aromas of strawberry and cherry, balance between the refreshing acidity and the alcohol, silky-textured tannins, and a long fruity aftertaste, contribute to create a wine displaying firmness and great elegance. Ready to be enjoyed now, the 2011 Kali Riza will continue to improve in the bottle for many more years. Pairs ideally with meat cooked in red sauce, wild mushroom risotto, stuffed peppers with cheese or ground beef, meat pies, grilled cheese
