Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2010 Kallisti Reserve is all Assyrtiko, oak-fermented and aged in French oak (only 20% new) for 7 months. It comes in at 14%. In some respects, this is more like a Nykteri than a regular Santorini. Amber in color and quite burly, this is very ripe (although the winery says, not really Nykteri-level ripeness) and it shows its wood, plus alcohol here and there. It has a slightly sweet finish and an otherwise stolid feel that will be in sharp contrast to the bright and mineral-infused vision of Santorini (that many have). There are other styles, though, and this is one such. It is tasty and some will gravitate to it. It will also make a pretty nice food match, with the concentration and power holding up to other things. If it is your style, it has moments of persistence, concentration and power when it seems quite impressive. It evolved well with air, too. If you like the style, the score will be too low. If you don’t, it will be too high. There were 667 cases produced. Drink now-2020
Boutari Kallisti is the first "fumé” wine to be crafted in Greece. Its name literally translates from Greek to "the fairest”, and was inspired by Santorini’s ancient appellation. This is Boutari’s barrel fermented version of Santorini A.O.C.
