Professional Wine Reviews for Gentilini Eclipse Mavrodaphne 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.

Winery Gentilini

Country: Greece

It is almost impossible to understate the importance of local and regionally produced wines in Greek culture. Across the country, from the cities of the mainland to the villages, mountainous regions and islands, wine is produced using traditional methods and native grape varietals, and is drank in households and taverns, either accompanying the much loved local cuisine or alone as a refreshment under the blazing Mediterranean sunshine. For wine lovers around the world, Greece is known for producing several wines with something unique and interesting to offer, a refreshing change from the norm filled with surprises and complex, occasionally challenging or unusual flavors and aromas. Thanks to the vast range in terrain across the archipelago, Greek wine is as varied as it is delicious, meaning there is plenty to explore and enjoy from this fascinating and ancient country.
