After 1,300 wines on Delectable I finally get to try my first wine from Greece! The Xinomavro grape reminds me of Nebbiolo and similar medium bodied wines. Low alc, high acidity. Very good and have high expectations for dinner pairing.

Really nice. Light like nebbiolo with pop of cranberry, raspberry, and tart strawberry. Great zip on the palate and long finish. H/T to @Guillermo Gonzalez for the recommendation.

If black strawberries were a thing that existed, this wine would smell like them. The fruit is somehow light and brooding at the same time. Strawberry, raspberry, black cherry, cranberry, rhubarb, and pomegranate fruit; balsamic, rose, violet, black pepper, black tea, clay pot, and tar notes. Structured but very well-integrated tannins. Sort of Nebbiolo-like in both texture and flavor. Lovely!

I find this wine so fun, exciting, and yet balanced. It has that natural funk and floralness to it, dried cranberries, and ripe strawberries. It has a bit of everything, without being muddy. I also love the colour for some reason. 18$ in Quebec and well worth it!

What an outstanding Greek red! Lots of sweet dried fruit. Much lighter than other Xinomavro wines I’ve tasted.

What a surprise. Red fruits (mostly raspberry on nose) with roses and leather. Medium with nice tannins and acidity. Drinks like a great Barolo but 1/5 the price. Had with Vicias Greek feast - pom lacquered lamb shoulder and cous cous.
