Xinomavro is the flagship red grape of Greece and is sometimes compared to Italian Nebbiolo for it’s light colour, but full body, persistent tannins and generous acidity, that make them truly age worthy wines.

 

This wine, from Naoussa, in the North of Greece, has aromas of ripe tomato, tomato leaf, fresh cherries, sage and plum. Spicy medium body mouthfeel and tingly tannins indeed offer all the structure with a peppery and juicy aftertaste. 

 

If you've got the spare cash or the patience to buy wines and not drink them immediately, this is gonna mellow really beautifully for the next 5-10 years. Though it's still delicious and more fruit forward right away.
