All about savatiano

What's savatiano wine?

Savatiano is the most commonly cultivated variety of grapes in Greece and come mainly from the central region of the country. These grapes are medium to large-sized with a pale yellow color. They have low acidity and are resistant to drought conditions. This grape varietal produces a sharp, dry wine with varied shades of yellow. Winemakers like to blend this low-acidic grape variety with other Greek grapes. This grape is a key ingredient of Greece's famous resinous wine called Retsina. In Retsina, these grapes balance the acidity level. Winemakers blend savatiano with Greek grapes such as assyrtiko or roditis to produce several varieties of Greek wines. However, savatiano wine by itself is gaining popularity as a full-bodied white wine, resembling chardonnay in taste and character.
