Pale ruby in colour with garnet hue. The bouquet offers red cherry and plum and savoury aromas of dried herbs, leather and scorched earth, cloves, coconut, cinnamon and hints of vanilla. The palate, brings structured tannins and ripe red fruit, sweet spice and Mediterranean herbs, long on the finish with balanced acidity.

Markos is the third generation of a family of viticulturists and winemakers at Markovitis Winery, formerly Chateau Pegasus, and the first producer in Greece to practice organic. Based in Naoussa, a region in the north of Greece, near Thessaloniki, famous for making Nebbiolo-style wines that can be just as age-worthy. Marko's grandfather planted 24 hectares of the Xinomavro grape in 1970 in the foothills of Vermio Mountain region, in the north-western part of the zone, on gentle slope, between a forest of oaks. Xinomavro is the only wine made in the estate, made with 100% destemmed fruit and aged in old oak barrels. Xinomavro roughly translates as ‘sour black’ and the grape is known for its dark colour, high acidity and big tannins.
