    We could pair the baby pork cutlet with a red wine made by the indigenous grape of the region of Nemea in Peloponnese, Agiorgitiko. A grape variety that gives wine with soft tannic character, aromas and flavours of red fruit balanced by refreshing but not aggressive acidity. The use of oak will add a sweet spicy character to the wine expressed with aromas and flavours of cinnamon and vanilla.
