Also known as: Xinogaltso, Moschogaltso

A red variety grown over a small area in Western Macedonia (Grevena, Kozani) and sporadically in Thessaly (Karditsa, Trikala).

It is a vigorous, robust, prolific, productive variety susceptible to botrytis and acid rot and relatively resistant to periods of drought. It ripens after mid September.

The Moschomavro yields high-alcohol, balanced-acidity wines that are mildly aromatic and have a medium colour. It is used in making the Vin de Pays of Grevena.
