Tim’s Tasting Notes

90

2011 Domaine Thymiopoulos, Jeunes Vignes de Xinomavro, Naoussa

£12.50, 13.5%, Oddbins

Tasted at: Oddbins tasting

Xinomvaro can be pretty toothsome stuff, even when the vines are young. But this combines the Nebbiolo-like tannnins and dryness with some sweet, supple red fruits. The overall effect is vey tasty indeed, with hints of rose petal, raspberry and wild strawberry set against a background of savoury, spicy tannins. Delicious at the price.
