2000 Hatzimichalis Xinomavro Naoussa, Greece

SKU #1038753

This Greek domaine is located approximately 6km from the sea. Its location helps to prevent frost in the winter and moderates temperatures in the summer and autumn months. The vast estate underwent a series of changes. In 1974, eleven years after phylloxera destroyed all of the vines, Mr. Hatzimichalis planted new ones. While waiting for the vines to mature, the winery sustained itself by raising turkeys. To this day, the noble bird adorns each of his labels. This dry red, made from the Xynomavro grape in the Naoussa region of Greece, has a bright ruby color with spicy and cinnamon flavors and aromas. With ample tannins to support a balanced structure, this wine can be drunk now or kept for up to 5 more years.

Country:

Greece

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines. Click for a list of bestselling items from Greece.
