This is a remarkably fruity red wine made from the Autochthonous grape variety Saperavi, highlighted by slightly spicy and smoky aromas. Saperavi means "to dye" in Georgian and as soon as you pour this wine into your glass, you will understand why. Beautifully smooth tannin structure helps make this wine easy to drink on its own or pair with a plethora of dishes. It truly shines with kebabs and all sorts of grilled meats. That doesn't mean you shouldn't try it with your favorite stew. Shop ➞
