Sclavos 2019 'Vino di Sasso' Robola, Cephalonia, Greece

The Sclavos family traces its roots back for centuries in Cephalonia, with a branch of the family immigrating in 1700 to the Black Sea port of Odessa in modern day Ukraine with contracts for the distribution of wheat using their privately-owned commercial boats. As early as 1860 records exist of Evriviadis, the Great-Great Grandfather, owning a large winery and family estate in Odessa. In 1919, following the Russian revolution, Evriviadis returned back to the island of Cephalonia to their property of 6 hectares in the Paliki peninsula where he planted his first vines of Mavrodaphne and Vostilidi, some of which are still in use today. Today, two generations later, the domaine vineyards are cultivated and cared for in a homeodynamic regiment.

  • Tasting Note: Jancis Robinson said it best: "Vino di Sasso 2019 is searingly pure with a stony/mineral aroma and notes of fresh pears and citrus. It’s bone dry, a little bit salty on the palate, especially on the finish, mouth-wateringly fresh in an attractively sour way, long and taut. A high-wire wine but with lots of flavour. It has notable persistence and feels almost peppery in the mouth though I think this is more about texture than flavour"
