Grapes are hand-picked at the optimum of their maturity. Soft de-stemming and crushing is followed by fermentation at controlled temperature (23-28°C) in stainless steel tanks. Wine is fermented using the cultural yeast strains. Skin and cap management is performed by délestage and remontage. After 12-15 days of maceration, wine was racked clean and transferred for malolactic fermentation and was followed by 8-9 months of aging in 225 l oak barriques, complemented by aging in stainless steel tanks and bottles at the optimum temperature.

Tasting Notes

Dark ruby red with twinkling hints
Complex aromas of aged Saperavi with intense red fruit and spicy nose, with hints of coffee, dark chocolate and oak
Nicely structured, supple first taste is dominated by cherry. Ripe tannins are in right intensity defining the lingering finish in combination with fruit flavors
