88pointsKir-Yianni 2006 Akakies Xinomavro (Amyndeon)

Best Buy

This delightful, medium-bodied rose made from the typically tannic Xinomavro grape of northern Greece is a pleasant surprise, though Kir-Yianni has a solid reputation for making good wine. This is an exotic alternative for both casual wine lovers and serios vinophiles looking for something out of the ordinary, The wine is fresh, fruity and lively, with a tart strawberry nose and a combination of juicy fruit and clean, minerally acidity on the palate. Its body and acidity ensures that it will match bolder foods like roast lamb and beef, but will also be delicious with lighter fare like seafood and poultry. Its beautiful dark pink color is a selling point as well. Susan Kostrzewa
