This variety is frequently blended with Assyrtico as part of the white blended wine Brousko and other red versions of it.

Some believed that Aidani Mavro is from Adana, the southeastern part of Turkey, but there is no permanent evidence on this conclusion.

Hypothetically, Aidani Mavro is also a blending ingredient of the ancient wines Aperanthitis, Malvasia and Naxos.
