Naoussa Xinomavro 2015

Dark garnet/Medium ruby color. Bright aromas of ripe red cherries, earth and baking spices. Just a hint of Brett. Cherries also fill the palate along with notes of plum, minerals, black olives and dried herbs. Faint touch of vanilla on the medium finish. Bright acidity and light tannins. Nicely aged. — 2 months ago

Naoussa Xinomavro 2020

Whoa Nelly that’s a nose! Potent as being nosed out of sleep by my cat in the morning (ps I lied and told him that Xinomavro the grape was named after him, not vice versa). Full of dark red cherry, pepper, herbs (the wine not my cat, he’s just full of Fancy Feast) the palate echos the nose bringing in an amaro-esque element. I want more! — 2 months ago

Gi kai Ouranos Xinomavro 2017

Popped and poured; no formal notes. This glass was poured from Coravin. A fun, predominantly red fruited Xinomavro that has an interesting sweet corn sort of thing going on. Red fruits and leather. Structure is firm but well managed and not punishing. Balanced. A few years of age and Coravin may have played a role in development. — 3 months ago

@Peter van den Besselaar I have read that some compare Xinomavro to Nebbiolo and, in theory, I get it. In practice, I have yet to have a Xinomavro stir my soul like Nebbiolo can. Perhaps that will come with time.


Naoussa Xinomavro 2019

Alluring af mix of dark fruit, pears, flowers and…menthol? All grounded with tweed suit tannins. Keeps you going and going and going back for more. — a month ago

Domaine Karydas

Naoussa Xinomavro 2019

Xinomavro is really a variety to seek out if you want to drink complex wines of the highest level that still are really affordable. I love it. The nebbiolo market seems slightly flooded in 2023 and if you are looking for something similar this is it. Complex mesmerising aromas and a super structured and well balanced wine. Dark berries, plums, baking spices, marzipan, bay leaf, olives, mushrooms. Silky texture and a tannic finish. — 2 months ago
