Kir-Yianni Ramnista Vineyard Xinomavro 2013
#4 wine in VinePair's Top 50 of 2018
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.

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.
