Professional Wine Reviews for Gentilini Eclipse 2014

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Eclipse is a dry Mavrodaphne sourced from this island terroir, aged in a mixture of French and American oak for 12 months. The only problem just now, in this wine's youth, is the oak treatment. It is a bit too aggressive and stains the wine's fruit a bit too much. On the other hand, dry Mavrodaphne is sometimes a difficult wine. The overall structure and vinification here tame it beautifully. Underneath the oak, good fruit does rear its head and this becomes ever more interesting with air. Controlled tannins provide some grip on the finish. I suppose, if you give it some air, this is approachable now. You'd be better served giving a year or so to settle down. There were just 4,600 bottles produced.

Additional Information on Gentilini Eclipse 2014

Winery: Gentilini

Country: Greece

As one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, Greece has millenia of experience and expertise when it comes to viticulture, and has developed a set of flavors and characteristics which are found nowhere else on earth. The ancient Greeks revered and deified wine, and were the first true innovators in the history of wine, adding everything from seawater to honey and spices in order to find exciting new taste combinations and aromas. Today, Greek wines are just as varied, although far more refined and sophisticated than their ancient counterparts. The practice of enhancing Greek wines with aromatic substances never left the country, though, as can be seen in the popular Retsina wines, which use pine resin to provide their unique taste and aroma combinations. There is far more to Greek wine than merely Retsina, however, and the vast variety on offer is a testament to the expertise of Greek wineries making the most of the wonderful climate, terrain and grape varietals they work with.
