Thymiopoulos Aftorizo 2017 Naoussa
Apostolos Thymiopoulos continues to raise the standards in Naoussa, a mountainous area in the north of Greece, west of Thessaloniki. This is a highly anticipated, single vineyard release from a recently acquired plot of old vines that were left ungrafted because when they were planted the vineyard owners simply could not afford grafted stocks. Amazingly they survived and now at a venerable age, they deliver low yields of wonderfully expressive xinomavro. Apostolos' wines are always marked by their perfume and delicacy and this ethereal, gastronomic red takes it to another level. A wine that lovers of Barolo and Burgundy will adore, this is an instant classic that drinks beautifully now and should age gracefully for years to come.
