ROSÉ NICO LAZARIDI
MEDIUM DRY ROSÉ WINE
The excellent NICO LAZARIDI rosé wine, produced from the varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Its label belongs to the Château Nico Lazaridi family.
Completing this year’s three decades since CHÂTEAU NICO LAZARIDI’s first bottling is an opportunity not only for celebration but also for new beginnings: the three brand new Château Nico Lazaridi wines, white, red and rosé, are now released with new labels, crafted by the Greek artist Giorgos Taxidis.
All three works depicted on the new labels together constitute a trilogy of man’s actions on the vine, placed in three separate time frames. The label of the rosé wine is about the future- we see a human hand with a pruner: pruning the vine is an action that implies waiting, waiting for something new.
