gonna quote a Greek website:

"YOU HAVE NOT TASTED ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE! Yes, you may have heard it again, but we absolutely mean it. Spira from Ktima (Domaine) Ligas is a unique wine that raises the standards for all the rest of Xinomavros out there. Why? Because it is a blanc de noir Xinomavro which ages with the Solera system (YES INDEED)!!!

And now that we have your attention, prepare for some serious information about Spira. Originally, behind this wine lies the unstoppable and inventive Jason Ligas of ktima Ligas. Jason constantly experiments with new vinification techniques and with the "limits" of Xinomavro. His philosophy in wine is summarized in the following: permaculture *, no interventions in wine, no sulfites, no added commercial yeast. Spira 2016 contains essentially wine from 2012 until 2019 and every year it is bottled in limited quantity (this year is 700 bottles). The wine ferments in a stainless-steel tank and then it matures in large used oak barrels of Solera. The result is at least impressive and uniquely complex. As its creator says Spira is a gastronomic wine that surprises with its incredible structure."
