My first xinomavro. It’s good. Needs to grow on me a bit because the flavour is unlike anything I’ve had before. Need to try to this again from a different producer before I judge.

So the Greeks make wine now?

It tastes like Nebbiolo had a child with Sangiovese. And then that child had a love affair with Pinot Noir.

Agree with the Nebbiolo comparison. Good with food and lightly chilled.

I quite liked this. Light in color and texture but with some tannins too.

This was lighter and more delicate than most Xinomavro that I’ve had. In a blind test, I probably would have pegged it as Nebbiolo. It was delicious! Paired very well with stifado.

Cherry, tobacco, eucalyptus on the nose. Similar on the palate - red fruits mixed with some earthy herbaceousness. Medium body & acidity.

Enjoyed this a lot more than I was expecting: spice, vanilla on the nose and very strong black fruit on the flavor
