For the 9th consecutive year, Ktima Zafeirakis will be present at the "Great Red Wines 2023" exhibition, side by side with orher great red wines from Greece and abroad.
This years exhibition will be held on November 18 at Pyrgos Petreza (Spata area).
This is an exhibition much loved by wine lovers, as the visitors they have a rare opportunity to taste many high quality red wines, Greek and foreign, in a single day event .
Especially with regard to Greek wines, it is worth noting that many wineries present their best recent harvest red wine, which enables participants to compare the wine with the same wine from earlier vintages, sometimes aged over ten years. This fact is particularly important for those who choose to buy wine based on its aging.
35 Greek and 40 foreign wineries participate in the "Great Red Wines" through their representatives, with wines from France, Italy, Spain, the USA and Argentina. Both Greek and foreign wines, a total of 190 labels, are of top quality with scores from the most well-known wine critics, most of them between 93-98, reaching in some cases the "perfect" 100.
As specifically indicated on the website of fineredwines.gr for Christos Zafeirakis and the participation of the Estate in the Great Red Wines 2023:
"Christos Zafeirakis is one of the few, and even young, oenologists - winemakers with a name already connected to a grape variety, in this case the Limniona.
He uses indigenous yeasts from his organically cultivated vines, with principles of biodynamic agriculture, not because of fashion or marketing and without trumpeting it.
At Grear Red Wines 2023 it presents two different Limniona wines, the most elegant Terracotta from 2021 and 2020, naturally vinified and aged in amphora and the one vinified in more conventional containers, in three vintages: '21, '20 and '19, the lastly in a Magnum bottle, which is known to favor aging, in fact, from this excellent harvest.
Because in Tyrnavos, 2019 yielded grapes for intensely fruity wines with an exquisite phenolic profile, capable of long aging. A first trailer for this will be seen at the 2023 MKK, with the protagonist of Lemniona Zafiraki.
