Vinification method
Romeiko: Ferments in stainless steel tanks in controlled temperature at 25°C. Maceration takes place for approximately 7 days. After that, fermentation will continue in used barrels, where the wine will mature for 6 months.
Mandilari: Ferments with selected yeasts at temperatures between 25°C and 28°C. In order to assure the maximum and best extraction, techniques such as pump over of varied intensities, as well as fermentation in horizontal tanks, are chosen. The wine is aged for 12 months in both new and second hand oak barrels.

Flavors Harmony
2 Mazi red is best paired with roasted lamb, game or rich stews.
