History of the label: The label is a depiction of the greek traditional shadow theater, called Karagiozis, a representation of the Greek common people during the Ottoman rule.

Tasting notes:

 Bright golden colour. Rich, intense nose which evolves minute after minute into the glass. The aromas of pear and quince  reveal at the beginning giving their place to the aromas of sage, achillea and laurel afterwards. Harmonious in the the mouth with a longlasting aftertaste.
