Mavrotragano is a red grape variety derived from Santorini. Until recently, can be found dispersed through the island. The variety was under threat of extinction, but has started to become prominent with new plantings. Mavrotragano, is a multi-dynamic variety of exceptional quality and character, which can be used for dry red wine or sweet red wine. Traditionally, used in the island to enhance the aroma and flavor of red sweet wine. It is characterized by deep red colour, aromas of spices and red fruits, rich and gentle tannins, balanced acidity and complex after-taste. Wine growers had to work toward taming the variety’s robust tannins which complemented the rich, mineral-heavy mouth. It is certain that their efforts have not been in vain. Nowadays, is a fact that Mavrotragano has revealed, it has been planted frugally outside the terroir of Santorini, and it shows promise of being as unique as the land that has given it birth.
