Gaia Ritinitis Nobilis Retsina NV

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The only high quality retsina available in the market today. Ritinitis is made from the Roditis grape variety that is harvested in the Aegialia region of the North-eastern Peloponnese. Once the grapes are destemmed and crushed, only the free-run must is kept for the Ritinitis production. Fermentation lasts approximately 30 days at 16C. During fermentation, a carefully calculated quantity of resin from the Pinus Halepensis pine tree is added to the must. After fermentation, the wine is clarified with bentonite. Tartrate precipitation is controlled by a cool stabilization of the wine at -4C and then bottled. Overall, Ritinitis is a well-made white wine with a hint of mint and eucalyptus on the nose. This wine pairs extremely well with salty foods and Indian cuisine. - Winery

The ancient Romans admired Campania Felix as the most blessed wine region. They favored the vineyards along the coast of Naples where the most treasured wines of the empire were grown. They also praised the wines of the volcanic slopes of Mount Vesuvius, the wooded hills of Avellino and historic Sannio region. Even earlier, the Greeks had recognized the privileged nature of the place, introducing vines which still stand out today. Driven by its wish to replicate ancient miracles, Vini Nobilis today is producing high quality wines by capturing in each bottle a historic piece of a land with great wine traditions. Read less
