More traditional than this is impossible. Full of red fruit, sundried tomato and oregano. Texture is so lithe, the...

Another outrageous value red from Boutari here, that is, for fans of the leaner, sharper, dustier and more savoury...

Leafy and classically musty to be sure but the nature of the extremely traditional xinomavro will always lean this...

Savory Mediterranean style wine, herb and cherry, earthy, beautiful garnet color. It has all the elements of a great wine, made in a young easy drinking style. No mistaking this for anything else, classic, rustic and elegant. This is right up my alley. Gets an extra point for being too damn real!

Medium-high nose featuring graphite, sour cherry and some woody aromas. The palate is medium-full bodied with chalky tannins that could use some cellar time, pleasing savoury aroma replays and good acids. The finish length is very good. Tasted May/2016.

Rustic and ready to drink, once again, Boutari's Xinomavro represents fine value. This is all about sour cherry fruit, herbs and bright acidity, making this a perfect wine for tomato-based dishes. Tasted May 2017.
