Xinomavro, perhaps Greece's finest grape variety as proclaimed by many wine connoisseurs; if you've never tried xinomavro red wine before, you'll be certainly impressed! This exquisite Greek red wine has a Barolo appearance in the glass and conjures thoughts of Piedmont in autumn, truffles & foggy hills, due to its high altitude vineyards. Like Nebbiolo, Xinomavro can be a tannic grape variety, but Apostolos Thymiopoulos (world's best rising star winery 2022) has ‘tamed’ it through a slow and gentle maceration and ageing in large oak barrels allowing the flavours to emerge without the raucous interruption of hard and bitter tannins.

A ruby red wine with finesse and balance, medium body and full of warm raspberry and cherry aromas backed by notes of sandalwood and spices, the palate is of ripe, juicy fruits, with some baked earth character and fine silky tannins. It has great ageing potential, but it's perfect to consume now too. Ideal combination for meat with rich sauces and with mature cheeses, risottos, steakscoq au vin, casseroles and BBQ meats.

An award winning vintage with impressive average score of 93pts by Decanter Word Wine Awards and 16.5pts by Jancis Robinson. 

A must try wine if you like Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir or the finest Barolo crossed with a silky red Burgundy.

Best served: at 14-16 C.
