Don't be scared of the X-word here... this unoaked red changes expectations of Xinomavro with its firmly juicy, fresh and energetic style with carefully managed tannins. I've actually poured this instead of a summer white along with Mediterranean small-plate fare and it substituted beautifully when you would normally think a white would be ideal. It makes me respect the varietal all-the-more, with Xinomavro (similarly to Nebbiolo) showing capability on the treble end of the scale as well as the bass end. Certainly a value, this is a versatile and underappreciated style of red when something similarly priced like a Cote du Rhone perhaps isn't enough fun.

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.
