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

Thanks to thousands of years of viticulture, and a dedication to quality and experimentation, Greek wines remain in a league of their own and continue to surprise and delight wine lovers around the world. From the refined and delicious Agiorghitiko wines, with their deep ruby red color and intense fruit flavors, to the unusual and highly aromatic fortified wines made with the black Mavrodaphne grapes, Greek wine is renowned for its variety and consistent excellence. It seems the blazing Mediterranean sunshine allows wineries to make the most of the late harvests and all the intensity of flavor this brings, resulting in wines which are bursting with fruit-forward character and unusual aromas.
