Mavrotragano is a rare, but very interesting indigenous red variety of Santorini. Mavrotragano is quickly matured even by the end of August and in the past it was used for sweet wines or sometimes for Vinsanto. It is a variety with low performance and it is very sensitive in dry climatological conditions. The grapes are long and fleshy, with bright color, with thick skin and crispy. The fermentation of mavrotragano raises the alcohol of the wine up to 14o-15o vol with a very well balanced acidity.
Mavrotragano is a variety rich in colors and aromas. The taste is balanced and bodied, with a long finish.
Mavrotragano of Estate Argyros is produced by 100% Mavrotragano, in a limited number of bottles.
Tasting comments: Bright red color with aromas of gooseberry and cherry. The mouth is round with soft tannins.
Accompanies: Red meat and meals spicy or with red sauce
