Paraschos are not using chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. The grape is fermented with the skins for 5 days in open vats the wine matures on the lees for two years in large oak casks. Undergoes clarification, filtration or addition of sulfur anhydrides. The wine is great quality. The nose shows a great variety of flavors "held together" by a deep minerality; ripe peach, candied apricot, citrus, mango, white flowers, herbs, ginger and dried fruit. Rich and full bodied when tasted almost salty and very fresh, it is a wine of great complexity of taste and smell and long finish that leaves memories minerals, exotic fruit and citrus.
