Also spelt Commandarìa, this is a Cypriot wine of the Malvasia family. The wine was renamed “xinisferi emofrodafne” in the 19th Century by a German who had fallen in love with a Greek. Following uncertain origins, the wine was brought to areas of the western Mediterranean between Malta and Rhodes by the Templar Knights.
The port city of Trieste welcomed with pleasure this wine coming from the ports of Cyprus and Patras; it was one of the first sweet wines to be discovered, as early as the 13th Century, well before the English were able to put their personal label on it and perhaps for this reason in Trieste it became famous as “Vin de Cipro”, key ingredient in some of the most famous of Trieste’s sweets (putizza and presniz).
The age of the wine is known thanks to the fact that, at every new bottling of the year’s wine harvest, a drop from the previous year would be placed in the bottles.
