Cavino is headquartered in Aigio, just east of the port of Patras. Of all the winery’s wines we tasted, this one, from their home appellation, was the most impressive, a mavrodaphne that stands out for its savor and detail. Here sweetness is the motor rather than the starring element, a current that sweeps along vinous flavors of pomegranate, walnuts, plums and light spice. Concentrated rather than thick, with citrus highlights, this wine would be as delicious with highly spiced meat kofta as with a walnut cake.
90 points, Wine & Spirits
Red colour with terracotta hues. Aromatic notes of dried fruit (plum, fig, raisin). Warm, sweet with notes of tannins that enhance its structure. Ideal with salty dishes (spicy cheese dip), syrup desserts and fruits.
