A historical and ancient variety of the Aegean Sea, is also cultivated in the mainland of Greece (mainly in the North). It produces very interesting dry wines and is appropriate for the production of very good sparkling wines. Wines made of Athiri have fruity aromas of moderate intensity and an elegant palate, with a refreshing acidity, medium body and moderate alcohol. We come across it on its own or in a blend, in PDO Santorini, PDO Rhodes and PDO Côtes de Meliton.
