  • What we love

    The 2016 “Ramnista” is the winery’s classic Xinomavro, aged for 16 months in 30% new French oak. An aromatic, complex wine which combines powerfully fresh red fruits with notes of olives, cedar, smoke, and savory spices. An excellent pair for red meat, lamb, or game.

About this Wine

Not a wine many of our readers have heard of (or have tried), Xinomavro is the most famous variety of Northern Greece. These wines are dense with silky mouthfeel, big tannins, and good acidity. In fact, the name means “Acid Black.” These wines have a lot of layers and are often compared to Nebbiolo from Italy.
