Thymiopoulos' 'Xinomavro' is a blend of higher altitude parcels around the village of Fytia and the warmer, lower elevation parcels adjacent to the village of Trilofos. Despite the pale colour, this wine packs in plenty of character, offering dark fruit, tobacco and black olive flavours with a balancing acidity and a bold tannic structure.
