Dry Red Wine - PROTECTED GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATION CYCLADES

The wine «Mavrotragano Gavalas» is produced by the indigenous varietal Mavrotragano, known for its deep-red and crunchy berries, with one year of aging in French and American oak barrels. The varietal Mavrotragano was under extinction but thanks to the loyalty of the local wine producers to indigenous varietals, today is one of the most talked red varietals of the island. Grapes are harvested early to mid-August. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at 20-22° C, which is followed by the maturation into French and American oak barrels for 12 months. The skin contact lasts till almost the end of the fermentation.

(Mavro)Black ... (tragano) crisp ... is a wine with intense deep red color and ’crisp’ acidity. Concentrated aromas of red fruits (sour cherries, blackberries) and tobacco. Rich, dense full-body, spicy with ageing potential. Velvety tannins and long, metallic after taste.

It accompanies red meats, game and red spicy sauces.
