Description

About wine: A wine of golden copper colour with brown and amber hues, obtained during long maceration in underground amphorae called kvevri (clay vessels). A pleasant bouquet indicates a harvest at the full maturity of the grapes, when the fruit aromas already dominate the floral ones. Among them, there are senses of fine pastry with raisins, walnuts, and vanilla. All our greatest expectations are confirmed on the palate: richness, minerality, finely tuned balance between alcohols, acid and tannins, which predict longevity. The flavour is multilayered and evolves in its complexity by the minute. Sometimes the fruity components come to the forefront, other times the balsamic notes take over, or the milky-caramel and buttery components take center stage. The departure is long and leaves the palate clean, ready for a new glass or the company of food.
