Naoussa Markovitis - 2019

It is undoubtedly one of the best and most historic Xinomavros produced in the region of Naoussa. Until recently we knew it by the name Chateau Pegasus. It changed to Markovitis Winery, but remains amazing. This is a true example of an elegant Naoussa, a Xinomavro that strikes the balance between the classic approach and the new vision that this area has to show.

12 months in oak (but not new barrels), soften the tannins, round the palate and elaborately do not cover the primary aromas of the variety, only adding a light veil of spices.

If you are looking for a Xinomavro with the perfect balance of intensity and refinement, this is your wine! But if you are nor in a hurry, give it 5 years and the result will definitely make up for the wait.
