Apostolos Thymiopoulos is one of the most important Greek producers of the new generation! They are among those that have opened new horizons for Naoussa's Xinomavro. But it could not stay within the boundaries of a particular region. After his successful 'landing' in Santorini, he attempts to 'conquer' Rapsani. Tasting this complex and multi-faceted wine, one of the finer vineyards in the area, where Xinomavro occupies about 50%, we can already conclude!
Its color is deep red with several purple highlights. Its fragrances are deep-fruity, referring to ripe red and black fruits, earthy notes such as tea leaves and mushroom as well as lavender, sun-dried tomato and vanilla. In the mouth it is dense with the fruit again dominating, the tannins being palpable but very well worked and the high acidity completing a disarming taste. It is undoubtedly a wine that will evolve even further as it stays in the bottle.
