undefined, null

Widely regarded as the finest red wine from Greece, the native Xinomavro (literally meaning “acid black”) reaches its fullest potential in the country’s NW region of Naoussa. These single varietal bottlings of Xinomavro (blending is not allowed here) are often compared to the fine Barolos of Italy for their structure, finesse and age-worthiness. While its vines are fickle and blue-black grapes grow in tight clusters, similar to Nebbiolo, Xinomavro actually appears unrelated.

Tasting Notes for Xinomavro

Xinomavro is a dry red wine with vigorous tannins and acidity. Xinomavro wines are dominated by spicy dark fruit notes of blackberry, plum, cherry, pepper and clove.

Perfect Food Pairings for Xinomavro

The tannins and acidity of Xinomavro call for richer dishes, so pair it up with filet mignon, lamb moussaka, mushroom risotto and anything involving feta.

Sommelier Secrets for Xinomavro

The use of French oak can help tame Xinomavro, but too much can overwhelm it. Some eschew oak entirely during winemaking; other producers use locally-grown walnut.
