Saperavi

Protected GI red dry oaked wine
Grapes: Saperavi
Volume 750 ml
Alcohol 12-14%

The dark red wine is crafted from selected Saperavi grapes, cultivated at Fanagoria’s best vineyards located in the Taman peninsula. The grapevines are cultivated with the use of most state-of-the-art viticultural technologies; the grapes are harvested manually as soon as they have reached the optimum level of ripeness. Following meticulous sorting and destalking, the berries are exposed to temperature-controlled fermentation. The wine was matured in an oak barrel for a year, with a subsequent bottle seasoning for at least 6 months.

Bouquet: with well-developed maturation notes and touches of prunes, sloes, chocolate and vanilla. Taste: extractive, velvety, and fresh, with a strong fruity finish.

To be served at 16-18 °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.
