Gavala Mavrotragano red 2020


Gavala Mavrotragano red is a distinctive wine produced from the Mavrotragano grape, a variety that is native to the volcanic Greek island of Santorini. This grape was once on the brink of extinction but has been revived and is now a prominent feature of the island's wine production. The wine is known for its deep red color and a complex flavor profile. It is a dry wine with a robust body and a notable crisp acidity. The taste is layered with rich aromas of red fruits like sour cherries and blackberries, accompanied by hints of tobacco. Additionally, there are oaky notes of oak, tobacco, and vanilla, which contribute to its unique character. Gavala Mavrotragano also features interesting layers of paprika, cinnamon, and thyme, leading to a fresh and spicy finish. The wine's velvety tannins and long, metallic aftertaste add to its appeal, making it a favorite among wine enthusiasts. It also has a good ageing potential, which allows its flavors to develop and deepen over time. This wine typically contains about 13.0% to 13.5% alcohol by volume and is sealed with a cork closure
