Naoussa, Domaine Diamantakos

Greece, Naoussa

Greece is the word. Made from the Xinomavro grape (pronounced Ksee-noh-mah-vro) this superb wine from the Naoussa region is Greece’s noblest red variety. This challenges a good Barolo head on with its full body and rich, savoury, spicy dried black fruit character. Textural and individual – a real food wine!

Origin

Naoussa is situated in the north of Greece in the district of Macedonia, some 500 kilometres from Athens. This is a region which enjoys four seasons and much tourist interest - from skiing in the winter to a summer holiday destination.

The dominant grape of this area is the mighty Xinomavro, which many call the “Nebbiolo” of Greece. It is rightly considered to be Greece’s finest red. Soils are well drained rich in limestone and schist. The summer climate is continental and the long autumn of 2011 promoted perfect ripeness and balance.

Grape Variety

100% Xinomavro.

Grapes are hand harvested in the early morning hours. Xinomavro wines spend about a year in French oak barrels of 500 litres in size, before being bottled and spending a further 6-12 months ageing before release.

Alcohol Percentage

13.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 5 years.

Producer

Domaine Diamantakos owns 4 hectares at an altitude of 300 metres. Vineyards were planted in two stages - 1979 and 1981, plantings dominated by the Xinomavro variety. The family began bottling its own wines in 2000; today, the estate is run by George Diamantakos.

Food Match

Just perfect with a roast rib of beef and roasted vegetables with tomato. Or with any BBQ char grilled meat and veg in the summer.
