Let’s get the pronunciation things over with first. ‘ay-or-YIH-tiko’ is the ‘St George’ grape and makes dense, dark, bramble and black-fruity wines, lifted by brighter red fruit aromas and a herbal, savoury edge. It’s a fine, elegant wine too, and one of the great wines of the Med. I have enjoyed this with steaks and grills and mushroom dishes.
