(Dry – Vouni Panayia Winery)
Barba Yiannis is an excellent expression of the Maratheftiko variety. Robust, with ripe fruit and character, it has at the same time a velvety dimension in the mouth, excellent levels of concentration and beautiful complexity. Old vineyards at an altitude of 800-1150 meters and the careful use of old barrels lead to a wine that highlights the noble dimension of the variety. Although Mavro dominates the vineyard of Cyprus, Maratheftiko is the “pride” of the red Cypriot varieties. Barba Yiannis has cherry and black fruit aromas on his nose. The wine will mature in old oak barrels for a short time, keeping the exceptional interest in the fruit and its excellent structure.
