Winemaker Notes

Aromas of strawberry, cherry and rose, in combination with fine vanilla notes from oak maturation. Although youthful, the wine’s aromatic power and tannic structure reveal strong character and great aging potential, thanks to an outstanding vintage. A typical expression of Ramnista that will need about 1 hour of decanting before we enjoy it in its first years.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
This displays xinomavro’s magical ability to be both mouth-crushingly tannic and seductively delicate at once. It works because those tannins are filled with flavors, powering the wine through a forest’s worth of truffle and dried cherry scents, while hints of leather and roses make the sides of your mouth juice up. Decant this if you open it now, and serve with something rich and fatty, like pork shanks; otherwise cellar it for ten years.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Ramnista tops off this issue's vertical. It was aged for 18 months in French oak (different vineyard blocks are aged separately for the first 12 months, then blended for the last six months into the same barrels). This is the new vintage, not yet arrived, but scheduled sometime in the spring of 2017. In general, it looks like a good year in the region and so, too, here. Big and full bodied, this has plenty of fruit to balance out the tannins, but it is no surprise that it is drying on the finish and unevolved. Surprisingly lush just now, this wine is likely to close up as its power takes over. It looks lovely just now, but prepare to cellar it, not drink it.

Kir-Yianni, Naoussa, Greece
Image of winery
The KIR-YIANNI company was founded in 1997 by Yiannis Boutaris. Based in Naoussa and Amyndeon, on both sides of mount Vermion in Northwestern Greece. At the time Yiannis Boutaris was one of the leading figures in the Greek wine industry, when he left the Boutari Wine Group, the premium family wine company that his grandfather established in 1879. Today, the Kir-Yianni team, under the direction of Stellios Boutaris, son of Yiannis builds on the core pillars of the company’s philosophy: innovation, respect to tradition and specialized knowledge on wine, from the vineyard to the final consumer.

Naoussa is home to one of Greece’s most age-worthy reds: Xinomavro. Flourishing on the sun-exposed, southeastern-facing slopes of Mount Vermio between 700 to 1,700 feet in elevation, some say Xinomavro is Greece's red counterpart to its famous white, Assyrtiko. Others liken it to Italy's well-respected, highly perfumed and powerful, Nebbiolo.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
