Markovitis, Xinomavro 1997
Outstanding mature Xinomavro from one of the most iconic Greek estates. Still baby faced at 23 years.
One of the best and most historic examples of Xinomavro produced in Naoussa. Ripe red fruit, sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs on the nose, a long spicy finish and balanced acidity.
Markos is the third generation of a family of viticulturists and winemakers at Markovitis Winery, formerly Chateau Pegasus, and the first producer in Greece to practice organics. Based in Naoussa, a region in the north of Greece, near Thessaloniki, famous for making Nebbiolo-style wines that can be just as age-worthy. Markos’ Xinomavro is the only wine made on the estate, made with 100% de-stemmed fruit and aged in old barrels.
