Theiako Mavro

The red grape variety comes from Greece. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2000, there is a genetic relationship with the two varieties Goustolidi and Robola. However, the parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The medium maturing vine produces spicy red wines, which are mostly used as blends. It is cultivated on the two Ionian islands Ithaca and Kefallonia. In 2010, however, no stocks were reported (Kym Anderson). There is also a white mutation called Theiako (also Thiakon) on the island of Lefkada.
