2006 Economou Liatiko Crete

SKU #1258766

This Greek red comes from Crete, the largest of the Greek islands. The grape is Liatiko, found in the central and eastern parts of the island. 2006 is the current release of the Liatiko; Winemaker Gianni Economou holds back his wines until he feels they are ready, so you can find other bottlings of his with current releases dating back to 1999. His wines are balanced, pure and earthy expressions of Greek varietals. The 2006 Liatiko is drinking superbly, with aromas of cured meat and white flowers and flavors of figs, cherries and leather. At this point it has developed a light body and fine tannins with very savory characteristics. Drink this now with pork or lamb, or hold onto it for 5 more years to see it really develop. (Olivia Ragni, K&L liaison for Greek wine)

Other Red Wines



- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines. Click for a list of bestselling items from Greece.
