It appears to have bright and light color between light rosy and salmon. Lively nose reminiscent primarily of red fruits like strawberry and cherry, with a hint of lemon verbena and an almost imperceptible presence of spices. Elegance and finesse with a refreshing acidity which balances the alcohol creating a sense of harmony rounded up with a pleasant fruity finish. You can drink it now or in the next 2-3 years. You could pair it with fine cured meats, fish in light red sauce, grilled red mullet, tuna carpaccio, even stuffed vegetables but you can also enjoy it on its own.

The story begins in 1979, when Costa Lazaridis establishes in Xiropotamos, on the slopes of mount Falakro the first modern linear vineyard in Drama. In 1986 Costa Lazaridi built the only, at the time, modern winery in the region, to vinify the grapes of his private vineyards. Innovation and respect for nature are characteristic of every undertaking of Domaine Costa Lazaridi since the beginning. Since the 70’s, Costas Lazaridi deeply believed that his homeland can produce high quality wines, able to compete on the world stage and turn Drama into a City of Wine. This conviction became the vision of the company and is reinforced by the confirmation of specialists and consumers. In 2000 they planted a 20-hectare vineyard in Kapandriti, Attica and in 2003 the Domaine constructed Oenotria Land in Kapandriti, Attica. Domaine Costa Lazaridi Merlot Rose, has Provence style. This rose dry wine is made of Merlot grape variety, with short skin contact and fermentation in stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks.
