The wine is made by a classic technology – addition of grape spirit into the juice fermenting under the cap of grape skins, with a subsequent three-year-long maturation in new and one-year-old barrels made from Caucasian oak. The grape spirit used for this wine was made at Fanagoria brandy production facility.
