"The 2019 Ramnista, all Xinomavro, was aged for 16 months in 30% new 5,000-liter French casks (but for a 5% dollop of American wood). It comes in at 13.8% alcohol. I don't often compare producers within tasting notes, but this merits a comment. There are different styles of Xinomavro, just as in other regions with other grapes. A modest contrast in this report is this Ramnista versus the Naoussa from Domaine Karydas. The Karydas is lusher and rounder, seemingly more mouth-coating. The Ramnista is nervier, silkier and a little sharper, showing off its tannins and earthiness just a bit more, yet it is not a truly rustic Xinomavro. It is accessible now, but it could use another year or two in the cellar. They are both well done, different sides of the same 2019 coin. I liked them both about equally well and the pricing is similar, (RP, 91 points)".
