Xinomavro [ Ksee no' ma vro ]

Jul 2016

Xinomavro, one of the autochthonous Greek varieties, defies pronunciation unless you have a good teacher (see Apostolos Thymiopoulos video below). In Greek, xino means “acid” and mavro means “black,” but the translation bears no resemblance to the wines that Xinomavro becomes today, except that they still have a strong acidic nature.
