Sweet red wine from Patras. A ruby-red color; an intense and rich nose redolent of black raisins: a full-bodied, rounded palate showcases the sweetness of dried raisins; the mouth is filled with marvelous Mavrodaphne notes, while the tongue receives a welcome surprise in the guise of this intensely pleasurable versatile wine. Pairs well with fruit platters and yellow cheeses; also the perfect accompaniment to chocolate delights. Enjoy as an aperitif or dessert wine but, above all, use as the basic ingredient in homemade sangria.

Wine EnthusiastIntense aromas and flavors of raspberry, blackberry and spice characterize this dessert-style red from Patras. Though the wine has a sweet, rich overall character, lively acidity adds a freshness that balances.
