Saperavi

GI red dry oaked wine
Grapes: Saperavi
Volume 750 ml
Alcohol 14,5%

The wine is crafted from Saperavi grapes, cultivated at Fanagoria’s best vineyards located in the Taman peninsula. Technological peculiarities: hand picking, soft processing, fermentation at low temperatures. The wine was matured for 12 months in French oak barriques.

The wine has a rich ruby colour, with a strong and well-developed bouquet with tones of dogwood, chokeberry, blackcurrants, sour cherry, prunes, and leather, framed with dairy and tobacco-spicy notes, and a lengthy chocolate-plummy finish.

Wine and food pairs: grilled meat, beef and lamb dishes, game, and matured cheese.

To be served at 17-18 °С.

Important! In Georgian, Saperavi means ‘painter’, ‘dye’, ‘colour giver’, because the berries of this grape variety contain a great number of anthocyans (a colouring matter), so do not wonder if your mouth and the glass will become coloured after you have tasted this wine.


Recipe: Dolma with red dry oaked wine Cru Lermont Saperavi Fanagoria.
