GREECE'S ANSWER TO FINE NEBBIOLO
Dalamara is one of the benchmark wineries of Greece's Naoussa region, tucked into the mountains of Macedonia in Northwestern Greece. Greek wines are mighty foreign to most of us, even in the trade. We understand too. By the time you have learned all 2,000 Italian grape varieties, who has room in their brain for the Agiorgitiko's and Xinomavro's of Greece. While the grapes are difficult for us English-speakers to pronounce, there is an abundance of vivid new flavors and terroirs to be discovered in Greece. If you haven't had Xinomavro from Naussa. We should start by telling you that this is the most important region for the Xinomavro grape variety in Greece, and makes its most ageworth examples. Naoussa is to Xinomavro as Barolo is to Nebbiolo (sorry Barbaresco!). The analogy doesn't end here though, as Xinomavro's tense and tannic structure, dried red fruits, and wild scrubland herbs make for a near doppelganger of Nebbiolo's classic flavors. The Dalamara winery has been around since 1840, and delivers pitch perfect Xinomavro flavor for a relative bargain price. If and when the Texas Wine School teaches a Greek wine class, this will be the first wine we reach for to demonstrate the classic flavors of the Xinomavro grape.
