Domaine Tatsis Young Vines is a lively, fun wine with “crunchy” characters. Black olive, baking spices, violets, and black fruit aromas develop into intriguing, deep, and earthy flavors of dried cherries, violets, and olive tapenade, with tomato leaf and black pepper notes. This wine is a blend of 60% xinomavro and 40% negoska. A dark grape with firm tannins and sturdy structure, xinomavro is often compared to nebbiolo for depth, complexity, and ability to age. Negoska, on the other hand, has a soft, easy, herbal fruit character not unlike dolcetto or grenache. As per its name, this wine is made from young vines, five to 12 years old, 20% aged in one-year-old barrique and 80% in tank.
