Why do we love it?

Every wine that has the name of Apostolos Thymiopoulos on its label is a guaranteed masterpiece, so is Rapsani Terra Petra 2017. Xinomavro's rock star has gone beyond the boundaries of Naoussa and is determined to introduce us to all the different expressions of his beloved variety.

Apostolos Thymiopoulos is the one who changed everything we knew about Naoussa, one of the most important wine-producing regions of Greece, establishing wines with a lot of fruit purity and silky tannins. All of his wines are a revelation and sell out before they're even released. The reason? His wines are elegant, truly delicious and you can enjoy them now without the need for bloody, beef steaks to mellow the tannins.

Rapsani is a region that definitely has a lot to say as it makes the most fruity and velvety Xinomavros. This, in combination with Thymiopoulos' signature, assures you of the perfect result. Apostolos chose one of the highest vineyards in the area, with vines aged 15 to 50 years old. The vines are not irrigated and the old ones have been trained in a goblet shape. The combination of the above ensures high fruit concentration and expression, which is the best basis for creating a really great wine. The harvest took place in the first ten days of October when the grapes had matured perfectly. The precious blend, with a ratio of 50% Xinomavro, 35% Krassato and 15% Stavroto, originally fermented in stainless steel tanks and then in large oak barrels, where it remained for about 14 months.

With eyes closed, tasting Rapsani 2017 Terra Petra you recognize the finesse and the "signature" that Thymiopoulos puts on all of his wines.
