Described as a world class sparkling wine and getting rave reviews by experts of champagne, the Brut Cuvee Speciale by Domaine Karanika simply confirms every year the uniqueness of the Amyntaio terroir for sparkling wines.

Pinkish yellow in the glass, beautiful sparkles and mousse. The nose reveals a discrete saltiness, acidic fruits and roses, which are joined by the flavour of freshly harvested strawberries.  The acidity is present and balanced, matching with the bitterness of walnut peel.
