The The 2008 Kir Yianni Ramnista Xinomavro is a light bodied, integrated wine, with nice aromas of red currant, cherry, pine and liquorice. The tannins are refined to tannic (really needs to be decanted for 1 hour) and the silky finish is of medium length. Drink now or cellar for 5+ years. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - a recommended buy for lovers of light bodied wines. Tasted Feb/12.
