||Assýrtiko is one of the best known Greek varieties outside Greece. It is a white grape cultivar that maintains a high level of acidity even in hot Mediterranean summers. Although it is now planted throughout Greece, Assýrtiko is noted for being the predominant variety used for wines on the island of Santorini. The cultivar reportedly is suitable for crisp and structured white wines, as well as dessert wines. Robinson et al. WINE GRAPES, page 61 (2012); Boutaris, Mihalis. 2000.
