BOUTARIThe red indigenous variety "liatiko" is mainly found in Crete and dates back to ancient times. It probably owes its name to its early ripening, since it matures in July – the 7th (VII) month of the year. It offers dry wines, with a high alcoholic content and strong red colour, but also sweet, sun-dried wines with a rich aroma and full taste. "Iouliatiko" borrowed its name from the earlier appellation of this variety.

It can be served as an aperitif, and as a prime accompaniment for fruit platters, cream cakes, ice cream, as well as blue cheeses, like gorgonzola, danablu etc. Served at 6 - 8 °C.
