Why we love this wine?


It is truly admirable how Thymiopoulos manages to give his Naoussa Xinomavro's precise balance, delicacy, and fruit maturity. This wine has a cool climate character and despite the fact that it is light, it has substance, thus showing off the power and energy of the mountainous terroir. It has beautiful floral and cherry-like aromas,  that also include the tomato and truffle scents, the latter found in wines of top terroirs.

Tasting

It has a pale ruby ​​color with garnet hues.

On the palate, it has a medium to light body, crisp acidity, and moderate but juicy tannins. Strawberry, raspberry, and cherry are interlaced with fennel, butter, black tea, cinnamon, and ripe tomato in a delicious and silky whole. An earthy aftertaste that lasts.

Chic nose, full of juicy red fruit. Strawberry, cherry, cranberry, primrose, lavender, clove, cinnamon, star anise, and tomato sauce make up an impressive bouquet.
