Markovitis Xinomavro 2013
Bottle size: 75cl
Viticulture: certified organic
Winemaking: old oak
At 8 years old, this wine is approaching the perfect age for showing off Xinomavro at its best. Ripe black fruit, aromatic Mediterranean herbs, and an appealing earthiness make this a complex yet eminently drinkable drop.
About the producer: Previously known as Chateau Pegasus, the Markovitis estate is currently run by third-generation winemaker Markos. Their focus is on the local variety Xinomavro, which is often compared to Nebbiolo in terms of age-worthiness and character. The winery releases their wine only after significant time spent in the cellar, ensuring readiness to drink.
