97 points Decanter
“A tropical fruit basket with tutti frutti complexity. The wine opens with a ripe and juicy peach aroma that opens onto a palate of great freshness with minerals and lemons. An outstanding wine with balance and concentration.”
"Only the oldest vines (>200 years) on the island. No oak. On fine lees for 8 months to encourage autolysis. Two years in bottle. Intended to be most representative of Santorini Assyrtiko – how Santorini should be. 20,000–30,000 bottles produced. 2019 is the current vintage.
Very pure and intense nose. Long and complex. Nothing in the way. 17.5/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Cuvee Monsignori is the latest creation of Estate Argyros that ideally portrays the characteristics of the unique terroir of Santorini. It is produced with the vines of the vineyard of Episkopi – the oldest of Santorini – which has been cultivated by the Argyros Estate for more than 2 centuries.
Citrus fruits, green apples, and apricots in the nose are followed by mineral notes and even faint sage notes. Rich in the palate with excellent structure and finesse has an unequaled balance between maturity and youthful mood.
Accompanies perfectly white meats cooked in lemon sauce, shellfish, grilled or fried fish, barbecued seafood, and various eggplant dishes. Best served at 10-12°C.
