feed Agiorgitiko - Nemea

Agiorgitiko (Greek: Αγιωργίτικο; also known as Aghiorghitiko, Mavro Nemeas and St. George) is one of the two widely-grown heat-resistant Greek wine-making grape varieties, the other being Xynomavro. It is a red variety that has traditionally been grown in the Nemea region of the Peloponnese. It is one of the more commercially important indigenous Greek varieties, and it can take on a large range of characteristics, from soft to very tannic, depending on factors in the growing and winemaking processes.
The grape is typically made in a varietal style though it is notably blended with Cabernet Sauvignon in the area around Metsovo to make the table wine which is traditionally called Katoi. In the region of Nemea it is often made into rosés of oak-aged red wines. The wines are known for their high level of fruitiness but tend to lack some acidity and body. After Xynomavro, it is Greece's second most widely planted grape variety.
The red wine produced from the grape is characteristically spicy with notes of plum. It has low acidity but good fruitiness and coloring.
Located in the Peloponnese next to the new town of Nemea, approximately 30 kilometers southwest of Corinth, the region was first noted for its winemaking by Homer who called it Ampelóessa, "full of vines." Today, the appellation of Nemea is the most important red wine AOC of southern Greece and arguably of all of Greece. In Nemea, the indigenous Greek Agiorgitiko grape is used and produces wines famous for their deep red color with violet and blue hues, complex aroma and long, velvety palate.
