Mavrotragano

Mavrotragano is an ancient red variety indigenous to Santorini, Greece. The wine is bright red in color and full of fresh red fruits and spices. Like many red, Greek varietals, Mavrotragano is a highly tannic wine, but will mellow and gain complexity with oak aging. Mavrotragano is also commonly used in the production of sweet wines. Due to it's brush with extinction, the variety is not protected as an endangered variety by the international Slow Food organization. – Description from Constance Chamberlain

Mavrotragano on Snooth

  • So you want to get geeky? The Jura’s hot today, and so is Sherry, but if ... by the Limnio, Agiorgitiko, Mavrotragano and Xinomavro yet your friends and family won’t be completely freaked out by the wines themselves. It’s time to generalize folks so hold on. I think for most people, myself included, saying Greek red wine is about as narrow as ... Read More

  • Iris Rose 2010

    Snoothrank:

    13% - A blend of 80% Mandilaria, 10% Voudomato, and 10% Mavrotragano. Slightly musky on the nose with dark, slightly sour fruit tones and a touch of cured fat top note. Rather high acid on entry with nice fruit edged in austere tannins. The fruit really grows on the palate, all wild berry and gamy with the acidity lending a sour plum aspect tha... Read More

  • Iris Rose 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of 90% Assyrtiko and 10% Mandilaria Smells a bit dominated by sulfur. SO2 shows heavily o the palate as well but given time this reveals a nice crisp, focused character with a touch of crisp tannin that supports lightly jammy, slightly smoky strawberry fruit. This is cleansing and refreshing and the fruit is nicely covering the structur... Read More

  • Gavalas Xenoloo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    2010 Xeneloo 13% - A red wine made with ½ day skin contact then 8 to 12 months of barrel ageing. Some Malvasia spiciness great s the nose here along with gamy, foxy undertones and some black spice. Bright and a bit sweet up front before the fairly assertive, drying tannins emerge. The black cherry fruit here is accented with a touch of plum and... Read More

  • Sigalas Mavrotragano 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Nice balance of oak and mild tannins-but very faint nose. Medium bodied with a stern acidity but some-what balanced by the oak profile. Similar to a California Cabernet with a finish that is dry but makes you want another sip. Read More
