Red wines from Greece use a mixture of different varietals and here are some more details on these.

Agiorghitiko - Commonly referred to as "St. George", [ Ah yore eye' ti ko ] is one of Greece's most important and noble varieties. It's primarily grown in the AOC region called Nemea, located in the Peloponnese. It produces a medium-full bodied deeply colored red, with soft tannin, fresh acidity, and remarkable aromatics. They also use the grape to produce very nicely crafted rose wines. 

Xinomavro - Grown with great success in Macedonia, Xinomavro wines are especially known for their amazing tannic structure and ability to age. It produces wines with complex aromas and flavours. 

Mandeleria - This grape also known as Amorgiano, is mainly grown on the islands of Rhodes and Crete. It produces a wine rich in color and participates in several blends in the appellations of Monemvassia in Paros, and Kotsifali in Crete. It is also made as a single varietal on the island of Rhodes, where it makes wines of distinction and quality. 

Mavrodaphne - This grape is primarily cultivated in the regions of Achaia and Ilia in the Peloponnese, as well as the Ionian Islands. It is successfully blended with a grape called Korinthiaki to produce incredibly delicious dessert wines. It also does very well to be blended with the Italian Refosco varietal and Agiorghitiko and Cabernet Sauvignon.
