Winemaker's Notes

Boutari Naoussa was the first bottled wine available in Greece (1879) and is the benchmark among Greece's premium red wines. It has won many awards over the last 50 years both in Greece and internationally. It is also the #1 selling premium red wine from Greece worldwide.

Color: Deep red

Aroma: Cedar, olive, tomato juice, spices and mint

Taste: Balanced and full-bodied with pleasant acidity and sweet flavors of vanilla, cocoa and berries.

Critical Acclaim

"Smoky with scents of smoldering wood, oolong tea and dried roses, this is lean and chewy, with flavors that recall wood-roasted cherries. The fragrance doesn't last long, but the light texture makes it a good choice for roast game birds."
89 Points

"A delicate red, with an interesting array of dried cherry, chocolate and kirschlike flavors. The mature-tasting finish has plenty of smoke and beef notes, with touches of orange peel. Xinomavro. Drink now. 4,900 cases imported."
88 Points
