Dark, smoky aromas of pepper and jerk-spice underlain with pure raspberry. Concentrated fruit with zesty acidity and medium tannins make this a super, full-bodied, wine.

Markus Del Monego: Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black centre. Black truffles, toasters aroma, balmy character, ripe berries and dark cherries, mild spices, complex and rich with a slightly smoky character. On the palate well structured with opulent fruit, balmy character, complex finish and excellent length. 94

Andreas Larsson: Medium to deep ruby core and a lighter rim. Intense nose, fair amount of complexity, wild berries, smoke, truffle and spice. The palate has good density of fruit, rather supple texture, balanced freshness, a complex smoky/spiciness, elegant raspberry fruit and a long, smooth finish. Very promising. 93

The next Greek wine revolution, Kir-Yianni

Largely Xinomavro with a splash of Syrah, the 2008 Diaporos unleashes smoky/flinty nuances accompanied by lush blackcurrant, dried herbs, lead pencil and menthol. Deep and complex with mineral, chocolate, leather and blackberry with medium tannins evident on the finish.

Il Diaporos Vin de Pays d’Imathia è una delle migliori espressioni greche del vitigno Xinomavro: la vendemmia 2008 si presenta di colore rosso cupo, molto fitto con riflessi quasi bluastri, molto consistente nel calice. Generoso al naso, propone intense e complesse sfaccettature aromatiche di frutta nera matura, prugna, sigaro, cioccolato, tabacco biondo, pepe, cannella e cuoio. L’assaggio è coinvolgente, rivela da subito un’imponente struttura e una trama tannica matura e ben lavorata; da un denso strato di frutta matura emergono scintille di freschezza e sapidità, equilibrato e persistente; un vino maturo e già godibile a pieno, dimostra comunque buone possibilità di invecchiamento. Ottimo, tipico, generoso, da provare con un gustoso e succulento filetto al pepe.

Deep and dark, soused fruitcake central, with a scent of coal-scuttle dustiness. Attacks deep sweet and then gets ripping bitter-sweet black fruit, backs by mouth-watering acid and tannins as it builds across the palate. This has powerful fruit plus structure: super dense, serious red wine.

Why Greek wines are about to become the next big thing

Greek wines are as intriguing as their popular French and Italian counterparts, and they’re half the price. […] Lighter-weight, complex reds like xinomavro and agiorgitiko are similar to pinot noir and Italian nebbiolo. […] Kir Yianni 2007 Diaporos $50 | Imathia | 90 points This unorthodox and expensive collector’s red is a cutting-edge blend of 87 per cent native xinomavro and 13 per cent syrah. It’s modern and sinewy, with rich aromas of chocolate truffle, sour cherry–plum fruit and pencil lead. It has finesse but tannin grittiness as well. Plays in the big leagues. Cellar it for three years.

Xinomavro pour la corpulence et les notes épicées et syrah pour le fruit: Un vin de facture plus internationale. Finale dense et intense. Sapide!

Βαθύ ερυθρό. Αρώματα με πολύ ευγενική έκφραση ντομάτας που συνοδεύεται από κόκκινα φρούτα, καπνό και αίσθηση βανίλιας, πιπεριού και κανέλας. Στόμα μεσαίου όγκου, στο πλαίσιο όπου οι τανίνες εμφανίζονται στιβαρές, χωρίς υπερβολές. Οξύτητα που του δίνει ζωντάνια, και αίσθηση ζαμπόν στην επίγευση.

Βαθύ ερυθρό. Αρώματα με πολύ ευγενική έκφραση ντομάτας που συνοδεύεται από κόκκινα φρούτα, καπνό και αίσθηση βανίλιας. Στόμα με στιβαρές τανίνες, οξύτητα που του δίνει ζωντάνια και αίσθηση ζαμπόν στην επίγευση. Ένας συνδυασμός στον οποίο επικρατούν τα χαρακτηριστικά του Ξινόμαυρου, με το Syrah να καλύπτει τις αδυναμίες της ποικιλίας με τον καλύτερο τρόπο, χωρίς να την παραγκωνίζει.
