A diva is born!

A femme fatale!

This is probably the winery that has managed to win the attention of audiences and critics more than any other after Robert Parker's and his team’s enthusiastic reviews. Rightfully, if you ask us, as the insistence of Theodoros Orkopoulos on the absolute expression of the terroir and the local varieties is reflected in all his wines. Daphne Daphne 2014 of Foivos Winery could not be an exception! From old mavrodaphne vines, on the slopes of Ainos of Kefallinia, the grapes are harvested carefully. They then ferment and enter French oak barrels until the wine is ready to reach our glass. Unbeatable fruit expression and concentration, "flattered" by the discreet touch of the barrel. The result is a wine that literally pulls you from the nose.

Forget what you have in your mind about sweet, "carnival" versions of the variety that unfortunately became synonymous with cheap sweet red wine. Mavrodaphne in the dry version gives super-impressive wines, with incredible elegance and complexity. This is exactly the case with Daphne Daphne 2014 by Foivos Winery.

Tastes Like

It has medium ruby color in the glass.

In the nose, it magnetizes with its intense floral elements: Violet and nightgown in generous doses, steal the show from the first moment. Cherry, cranberry, framboise jam, sour cherry, fresh plum, nutmeg and cedar notes complete the attractive fragrant bouquet.

In the palate it is medium bodied, with moderate, refined tannins, refreshing acidity and medium (+) aromatic intensity. Cherry, raspberry, sour cherry, black tea, spices, nutmeg, candied violet petals and coffee notes won’t leave anyone untouched! The flower aftertaste will  remain in your mouth for long!
