Boutari Kretikos has helped set the quality standards of Cretan wines worldwide. Kretikos, which means “originating in Crete,” the southernmost and biggest island of Greece, is crafted from carefully selected indigenous Kotsifali (Ko-tsee-fali) and Mandilaria (Man-dee-la-ria) grapes. The balanced wine features a brilliant ruby color, pleasant aromas of red fruits, smooth tannins and a lingering finish. Enjoy at 57-61◦F with sharp cheeses, pasta or roasts.
