    Winemaker Notes

    Generous aromas of red fruit, spiced with hints of liqorice and wild mint. Rich and complex with soft, round tannins.

    Excellent with rich meat dishes, game and aged cheeses. Enjoy after decanting to a carafe.

    Gentilini, Greece
    Gentilini Winery Image
    Established in 1978, the Gentilini Winery was founded by the Cosmetatos family. The Gentilini family originated in Este, a town near Padua Italy. In 1593, the Venitian Senate commissioned Marino Gentilini to build the extensive forts of Assos in Cephalonia. Eventually, he married and settled on the island permanently. In present times, Spiro-Nicholas Cosmetatos, a descendant of the Gentilini family, studied winemaking at the Wine Institute of Stellenbosch, South Africa. Upon completion of his studies, he decided to return to Cephalonia and begin producing world-class wines in Greece.

    A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exists, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. After centuries of adversity after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry took off in the late 20th century with an influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology.

    The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is mostly moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, sometimes necessitating irrigation.

    Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival and refinement of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include full-bodied and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
