Markovitis Xinomavro

"Impressive nose of ripe red fruit, leather, red pepper and tobacco right from the start. All backed with aromatic sweet spices, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon and subtle notes of sun-dried tomato and olive paste. Rounded tannins combined with balanced, refined acidity. Spicy fruit on the palate. Lingering peppery finish."
