Nemea Pinot Noir 2019

This is one of the better red wines I’ve had from #Greece The wine has ripe red fruit, hints of spice and hints of cedar and toast from an oak maturation. I don’t particularly like the oak flavors of this wine, seem slightly chocolatey toasty and take away from the fruit. On the whole, a nice bottle of riper #pinotnoir — 3 months ago

Epilegmenos Reserve Rapsani Xinomavro Blend 2015

Just okay here. Developed. It has some complexity due to the barrel and bottle maturation and the tannins are smooth but the wine lacks fruit expression and intensity and feels slightly overripe and slightly dull. #greece #rapsani #xinomavro #krassato #stavroto — 3 months ago

Grande Réserve Naoussa Boutari Xinomavro

Vintage 2010 - tasted blind, to fool my Barolo loving friends (@Berry Marinussen and @Noel Geisen recognized xinomavro, bravo). Xinomavro is Greece’s answer to nebbiolo, says Hugh Johnson. Very light colour, minerals in smell, plums. A bit difficult taste, certainly not middle-of-the-road, high in bitters and much power. Lots of character, I’d say. After aeration it’s smooth, though. Very interesting to taste. #greece #xinomavro pff, it’s an acquired taste, says my winefriend. It is 😉. — 4 years ago

And Greeks have their own Nebbiolo like Karipidis wines. Very good quality
