The acidity is unbalanced on this wine, it seems too high because there isn’t enough rich ripe fruit to balance it. Also there are yoghurt and cheese curd notes from the malolactic fermentation that don’t match well with the other aromas and flavors. I feel disappointed because this wine has good ratings from Jancis and Robert Parker Magazine but it’s just acceptable. #xinomavro — a year ago

#xinomavro #moussa #greekwines #greekwine pale ruby, reminiscent of a Pinot Noir or a Barbera. Crunchy bright red fruit on the nose. Anis and spice, liquorice taste on the palate. Highly quaffable — 3 years ago

Grande Réserve Naoussa Boutari Xinomavro

Vintage 2010 - tasted blind, to fool my Barolo loving friends (@Berry Marinussen and @Noel Geisen recognized xinomavro, bravo). Xinomavro is Greece’s answer to nebbiolo, says Hugh Johnson. Very light colour, minerals in smell, plums. A bit difficult taste, certainly not middle-of-the-road, high in bitters and much power. Lots of character, I’d say. After aeration it’s smooth, though. Very interesting to taste. #greece #xinomavro pff, it’s an acquired taste, says my winefriend. It is 😉. — 5 years ago

And Greeks have their own Nebbiolo like Karipidis wines. Very good quality

Just okay here. Developed. It has some complexity due to the barrel and bottle maturation and the tannins are smooth but the wine lacks fruit expression and intensity and feels slightly overripe and slightly dull. #greece #rapsani #xinomavro #krassato #stavroto — a year ago

Xinomavro Rose 2018

Vintage 2018 / First rosé from this producer. A playfull and frivolous wine. Fine smell with strawberries and a raspberry impression, very crisp an lively taste. Some spicyness. Interesting that the rosé is made grom #xinomavro grapes. / Paired it with Keftedes and zuchini tarts, gruyère cheese afterwards. — 4 years ago
