Greece is known for having different types of varieties. Aidini is a trivial white variety mainly found in this country.
Some says that this grape variety originally came from Adana, the southeastern area of Turkey, but no confirmed proof yet on this belief.
Aidani Mavro is one of the grape varieties that is referred to as its color mutation and not actually a distinct type.
Theoretically, Aidini grapes are also used as ingredients in the historical blended wines Apernthitis, Malvasia and Naxos.
Aidini or also called as Aidani or Aidani Aspro where aspro means white comes from the Kyklades or Cyclades islands in Greece; possibly from Santorini where it is traditionally nourished and developed.
Aidani Mavro is said to be Aidni’s natural color mutation and not its distinct grape variety. Certain synonyms of this variety are Aedano Mavro, Aidani Noir, Aidano Mavro, Ithani Mavro, Mavraidano, Mayraedano and Santorin.
I have been online since it all began, with blogging and creating websites. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one of my passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
