The ancient Saperavi grape produces dark, full-bodied, and complex wines. Deep red color wine with dark purple tones, made in Qvevri, traditional ancient technology. Grapes are stomped and put into egg-shaped clay pots called qvevri, which are then buried in the ground or kept in cellars. The clay provides natural temperature control and a little oxygen exposure, all of which makes for some truly dynamic wine, unlike anything you may have tasted. Qvevri wine-making isn't the type of thing that can be mass-produced, which makes each wine in this style unique.
Intense aromas of fresh ripe red fruits. The palate is soft and juicy with a minty noted finish on sweet spices and young tannins.
Goes well with spicy or peppery dishes, spicy stews, rice cooked with meat or mushrooms, hearty dishes like roasted meats, wild game, lamb, trout roast, chicken, and hard/aged cheeses.
