The Little Prince Red is a 65/35 blend of Kotsifali and Mandilari, unoaked and coming in at 13.5% alcohol. Given the grape blend, there is going to be a certain earthy nuance here to go with some acidity and power. For an entry-level red at a nice price, this is pretty serious at times, showing fine grip on the finish, complexity and lifted fruit.
The flavour profile has that bit of difference. This is a well-structured value, though, with no artifice. There isn’t a lot of concentration, but the rest works extremely well. It can be drunk a bit cooler than normal, as a summer red. There were 40,000 bottles produced.
