Mavro

Varietal

Mavro is a native red grape grown on the Cypriot island of Cyprus. The dark color of the grape gives it its name. Count Giuseppe de Rovasenda, an Italian ampelographer, refers to it as Cipro Nero in 1877. (Cyprus black). Because of its adaptability to the hot Cypriot climate, it has become the island’s most common cultivated vine. It is home to 70% of all planted vines. Mavro, unlike most mainland European grapes that are grafted on North American rootstock, tends to grow on ancient rootstock. This is due to Cyprus’ phylloxera-free status in the nineteenth century, when the disease devastated most other European vineyards.
