Xinomavro

Considered the King of the Greek varietals, xinomavro thrives in North Western Greece, especially in the areas of Naoussa, and Amyndaion. These wines are characterized by their medium ruby color, olive and tomato like profile, high acidity, pronounced tannins, and their ability to age for a very long time. The weather in this part of the country turns more continental with warm summers, and very cold winters (temps can drop to 0-5 F). The area can experience higher than normal rainfall, and frost is not unusual as late as May. With these conditions and varietal profile, xinomavro is easily compared to the Nebbiolo grape of Northern Italy (think Barolo and Barbaresco). Color-wise is closer to Burgundy (Pinot Noir). Just like its Italian counterparts, decanting for a while (2-4 hours), is highly recommended.
