PGI Markopoulo, 100% Savatiano

The 2012 Sabbatiano “Ktima Papagiannakos” (a stylized way, based on Greek lettering, of writing “Savatiano”) is dry, unoaked and comes in at 12.7% alcohol. Sourced from 60-year-old vines, this has been held back for late release and had skin contact, which together accounts for its dark color and mature feel. It is the current release, not made every year, unlike the more traditional Savatiano that we have seen before. As a result of its extra bottle aging, it has a gentle, seductive and very complex feel to it. Overall, it is very impressive, if you like whites with a more mature feel. Its nuances of maturity combine with some freshness and gentle flavors to make it a pleasure to drink. Don’t misunderstand, by the way–it may not have the exuberance of youth, but it is hardly dead or dying. It just has a mature feel. It is what the French would call a` point. It is lovely. It is a super food wine, too.  MARK SQUIRES
