Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2010 Nemea, revisited this issue, is an Agiorgitiko that spent 12 months in oak. This has certainly changed. It opens tight, rather high in acid and quite astringent now, making it hard to find any fruit, even on day two. Undeveloped and tightly wound in demeanor, it has become a powerful Agiorgitiko, preening in that crispness I originally noted, plus the emerging tannins. It certainly still has some nods to Burgundy, the crisp and intense finish, the elegant mid-palate, with earthy notes and complexity as it airs out. It has development potential, but it has closed down hard and the power is considerable. On day two, after having it open for several hours, I finally got some hints that there might be some fruit underneath. This is certainly a food wine that needs time in the cellar, but the real issue here is going to be whether the modest mid-palate is sufficiently concentrated to justify the time that is required. I tend to lean up for structure, but I would note some concern about balance. For sure, those who are used to viewing Agiorgitiko as a charming, easy and fruity wine will need to put their expectations here in order. This is still worth some effort and risk. It is a lot of wine for the price (on the street it might be close to $15), and as it aired out I began to remember why I liked it in the first place. If this is your style- a little bright, a little rustic - it has a lot going for it. Drink 2015-2023 (Apr 2014)

Producer
In the heart of Mantinia in Arcadia, Peloponesse, is a small winery owned by Leonidas Nasiakos, a second-generation winemaker and forth generation viticulturalist. His estate produces 6,500 cases of wine from the indigenous appellation varietal, Moschofilero. Moschofilero is a red grape that produces a beautiful light-bodied white wine that is fruity with pear, peach, melon, and citrus flavors and floral aromas of jasmine. Nasiakos’ vineyard is 2000 feet above sea level at the highlands of Mantinia. These very high elevations prolong the harvest time which ensures that sugar levels are at desirable levels. For Nasiakos, harvest time is in early October. Nasiakos has won numerous awards for his winemaking techniques and serves as the only consultant to the Greek Wine Federation for the Moschofilero varietal.
