Greece’s, “port like,” medium sweet red wine, produced from grapes grown in the northwestern region of Achaia.
“A rather sweet iteration of Mavrodaphne, soft, gentle and delicious, with very tasty fruit and that rush of sugar… shows beautifully for its style and youth. With time and air, the sugar integrates and it shows more brightness and character while remaining delicious and aromatic.” (90 points) – robertparker.com
