Perpetuus that means continuous, everlasting, perpetual. In 2004, the NICO LAZARIDI Winery, through its continuous quest of new tasting experiences and after a planning of many years and incessant vinifications in small individual batches, created two new products: a white and a red wine named Perpetuus.
The noble wine Perpetuus red is produced from the varieties Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, which create a blend of aromas and flavor harmony.

Intense ruby red color with brownish highlights. The vigorous aromas of small red forest fruits and violet, with hints of spices as nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper in perfect harmony with the aromas of the oak barrel. A strong, bounteous body that balances the acidity with the mature dense tannins. It has a gentle, complex, lingering finish.
Will respond well to aging for up to 12-15 years after harvest.
An excellent match for shank of lamb with saffron, pork frame with grape sauce and game meat.
