Situated just south of the town of Naoussa, on the Eastern slopes of Mt Vermion, comes this beautiful all Xinomavro wine, from a great vintage. Dark ruby in color, this is a classic earthy wine, with tomato and cherry overtones. Still tannic, it has developed very well overtime, showing concentration and power. It is a silky smooth example of traditional xinomavro with a lovely persistent finish. If you enjoy old world Barolo wines, this will be a perfect alternative. Great to drink now, just remember to decant for 3-5 hours and light up the grill for some dry aged steaks, fillet mignon, or braised meats in tomato based sauces. Sausages (think wild boar or lamb) as well as aged yellow cheeses will be at home with this wine.
