CAVALIERI XINOMAVRO

2020
PDO NAOUSSA
DRY RED WINE

 

NICO LAZARIDI presents a brand new wine from the Greek Xinomavro variety, to be added to the Cavalieri range.

Continuous research, testing and vinification: the search for the best never stops at NICO LAZARIDI! A new wine comes to complete the range of products of the winery, which counts 35 years of history and contribution to Greek wine.

NICO LAZARIDI’s goal was to create a series of single-distillery wine products, following the successful path of Cavalieri Assyrtiko, which in recent years perfectly expresses the typicality of this particular variety in mainland Greece. Cavalieri will now highlight the character of specific varieties. 

Xinomavro, the popular native variety of Northern Greece with international appeal gives wines with great aging potential.

Cavalieri LAZARIDI refers to the title of Cavaliere that has been awarded to Nico Lazaridi’s family members, in recognition of their contribution to the Italian Republic.
