Dark, sweet, with blended aromas of wild cherry conserve, blackberry, cinnamon and clove. A full mature taste with hints of spices, leaving a pleasingly sweetness. Ages well.

Sun dried aged sweet red. An old, sweet, red wine. One of its kind in the world. A product that could express the nature of Santorini best. Mavrathiro. This wine is a unique wine of Santorini that embosoms the entire sweetnes of the island itself in the bottle. It comes from the red grape varieties of Mantilaria and Mavrathiro. Mavrathiro is a result of all natural elements of Santorini. The grapes are ripen, covered in the foliage of curled vines. After harvesting, the grapes are left to dry at the sun-drying yards of Santorini, embracing the warmth of Santorini summer sunshine and the soft caresses of its sea breeze. The result is the magnificent sweet Mavrathiro. Wine press and vinification follows at the traditional Roussos family wineries in a way which reflects the tradition and experience of 170 years and hard work of five generations. The wines are further aged in oaken barrels in the hollow Episkopi winery and bottled years later. It is a wine with a beautiful aroma and an indescribable taste which inspires and yet delights your senses. A delicacy. Pleasure beyond words. Best enjoyed cooled at 10˚C or with fruits and nuts. Ideal for Celebration, Special Occassions & Festivals. Average production (in bottles): 12000 per year Alcoholic Content: 12.5% Vol Enjoy the taste of idyllic & romantic Santorini. An Experience that is Unique!
