From The MetroWines Book FYI Department


Along the French Riviera in the early 1900s, an illustrious family in thrall
to classical antiquity builds a fabulous villa—a replica of a Greek palace, complete
with marble columns and frescoes depicting mythological gods.
The narrator of this brilliant novel calls the imposing house an act of delirium,
“proof that one could travel back in time, just like resetting a clock, and resist the outside world.”
This is a Greek epic for the modern era.

Pale golden color. Medium intensity aromas of yellow and citrus fruits,
which are combined with a little more intense aromas of chamomile, jasmine and spices.
Full and rich flavor presenting the tasting characteristics of apricot and flowers.
Very pleasant, balanced acidity and fine finish. An ideal companion to soup of chickpeas
with lemon sauce or salad of boiled chickpeas with herbs.
