Andromachi’s Tasting Notes
Lola is a seductive blend of Mandilaria with a small equal amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Savatiano just to soften the fierce tannins. High quality resin is added at the beginning of fermentation, giving it its complex and herbaceous character. This wine, made every other year, has an impressive structure and is slightly reminiscent of a red wine, but it is not! Notes of candied red fruit, maraschino, spices, lemon peel and a remarkable touch of pine make it suitable for the most curious palates.
