Aidani is a white-skinned grape variety grown in Cyclades islands, mostly known for its complementing role in the production of the unique Santorini wines by balancing the power of Assyrtiko.
Although there are few varietal examples, Aidani gives wines with light aromas and flavors of flowers and tropical fruits accompanied with some herbal and mineral notes that are distinctive of the Santorini terroir. They are medium-bodied with relatively high acidity, albeit lower to that of Assyrtiko-based wines. Aidani is also used for the production of the famous sweet Vinsanto.
Although softer than Assyrtiko, wines from Aidani are well-paired with food. Their structure and acidity match perfectly with seafood and fish as well as with lemon dishes and white sauces.
