Golden Oldies: Rapsani 1999 – Tsantali

Set against the slopes of Mount Olympus, Rapsani boasts some of the most dramatic vineyard sceneries in Greece. Its wine, a blend of three local red grapes, is testament to the versatility of Xinomavro, once it is “tamed” through blending with other grape varieties.

Golden Oldies: Diaporos 2005 - Ktima Kir-Yianni

Golden Oldies: Diaporos 2005 – Ktima Kir-Yianni

Some wines make an impression from their very first appearance. You take one sip and you know that this is a wine that’s destined to have a great future. Diaporos is definitely this kind of wine. And I still remember its debut, round about that time of year, 9 years ago, in 2008.

Alpha-Estate-Red-SMX

Alpha Estate (SMX) 2013

An emblematic red wine that reflects beautifully the combination of terroir potential and winemaking philosophy of the estate. Xinomavro, the area’s flagship grape, rules, although the blend with Merlot and Syrah enhances its complexity, while maintaining structure and balance.

Rapsani Grande Reserve 2010

Rapsani Grande Reserve 2010 – Tsantali

This is a wine that signaled a new era for the gorgeous PDO zone of Rapsani. Hand-picked grapes from the area’s top vineyards at high altitude (over 800m), as well as careful oak aging, result in a rich, powerful red wine, with velvety tannins and a long, sweet aftertaste.
