One of the most beautiful Mavrotraganos on the market!

Why do we love it?

Mavrotragano Vaptistis is admittedly one of the most beautiful Mavrotraganos on the market, even though it does not originate from Santorini. The island of Tinos has entered the game dynamically and every wine we taste impresses us more and more. This is exactly what happened with the Mavrotragano Vaptistis.

Giannis Moraitis has been experimenting for years trying to make his own wine, on his favorite island. He studied the vineyards and the varieties that suit them best, ending up with the classic Cycladic varieties such as Assyrtiko initially and later Mavrotragano. If Assyrtiko is the king of the white varieties of Cyclades then Mavrotragano is the diamond of the reds. Mavrotragano is elegant but at the same time robust, with dense fruit and a strong element of minerality. The use of the barrel is as much as needed to emphasize the complexity of the wine. Specifically, the wine is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels and then it is bottled unfiltered.

Mavrotragano Vaptistis is wonderful now but if you have patience, it has a long way to go.
