Alargo Red Dry Wine by Douloufakis Winery
Grape Variety : Syrah
Red wine that was released under the brand name “Douloufakis Syrah” in 2005 ; its name and label were changed in 2011. “Alargo” means “far away” and the label illustrates a figure of a Cretan man looking into the distance at his homeland.
This wine is very dark-red coloured, close to Tyrian red. It has a complex aromatic bouquet that is reminiscent of plum, dark cherry jam, vanilla, dried ham and dark chocolate. The wine has an overabundant flavour profile which –as time passes- becomes richer. It has a thick taste, with juicy tannins and a long lasting, spicy aftertaste.
This wine is capable of ageing for up to 10 years.
Food matches : Well accompany red meat with rich sauces, hunting, pork shank and the traditional Italian dish “osso buco”. It would equally well accompany lobster cooked in red wine sauce or red tuna fillet, cooked on the grill.
Serve : at 17° C .
