Vines Unknown: Exploring Naoussa, Greece
Thursday, September 10th at 7 pm
Special Guest: Johnny Livanos

Join us as we explore the majestic wine region of Naoussa. Located in the northwest corner of Greece, Naoussa was the very first region to be given an appellation title and served as a model for the Greek appellation system. Special guest Johnny Livanos of Diamond Wine Imports will give us an in depth breakdown of the region and the main red variety, Xinomavro.

Xinomavro is being hailed as “The Barolo of Greece,” where it grows in the regions of Naoussa and Amyndeo. This wine can taste strikingly similar to Nebbiolo (hence the correlation with Barolo), with dark cherry fruit, licorice, allspice, and occasionally subtle tomato notes. Xinomavro has high-tannin and medium-plus acidity. In Naoussa, vineyards are located predominantly on limestone-rich clay soils (marl), which gives this region’s Xinomavro wines additional structure (tannin) and bolder fruit characteristics. These are good wines for the cellar!

We will have the pleasure of virtually tasting three different wines produced from Xinomavro including a sparkling rosé.
