Afrodite an autoctone wine that expresses all of its personality only with separate vinification. It is delicate yet decisive, it is fresh and fruity and exalts the contrast with the fragrances and spicy flavors. This wine epitomizes the goddess Aphrodite, who was forthright and tenacious; she married Hephaistos despite being in love with Ares, the Warrior God. By the order of Zeus, she was taken to Mount Ida with Hera and Athenas. Here Paris was called to judge the three women and select the most beautiful; he chose Aphrodite who promised him the hand of Helen responsible for the War of the Trojans.
