Signature Saperavi – Krasnostop

Red dry wine of PGI «Kuban. Taman peninsula»
Grapes: Krasnostop Zolotovsky, Saperavi
Volume 750 ml
Alcohol 13%

Peculiarities of vinification. A rich red wine from indigenous Saperavi and Krasnostop grapes grown at Fanagoria vineyard in the Taman peninsula.

Sensory characteristics. Prune, blackthorn, sour cherry and chokeberry in the flavour are combined with a velvety taste and rich and long finish.

Food pairing: grilled meat, barbecue, young cheese, steak with berry sauce, baked lamb. 

To be served at 14 - 16 °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.
