Also known as: Popolka of Naoussa, Negoska Popolka.
The name Negoska indicates its origin which is the area of Negos (the ancient name of Naoussa-Nea Augusta). Now it is cultivated mainly in Goumenissa. It is a very vigorous red variety resistant to drought which ripens in the mid September, earlier than Xinomavro. It produces high-alcohol wines with a vivid red colour, medium acidity and pleasant tannins.
