A historical, for many reasons, Greek variety, known for the homonymous sweet fortified wines, type Port, in the Peloponnese and the Ionian islands. During the last years it has shown excellent dynamics vinified also for red dry wines, with very good characters and a strong aging potential but it still remains relatively unexplored in this area. We come across it on its own or in a blend, in PDO Mavrodafne of Patras and PDO Mavrodafne of Cephalonia wines.
