Qvevris Saperavi (Vintage 2017) wine is produced using “Qvevri method.” A Qvevri is a uniquely Georgian creation, a large subterranean clay vessel, in which wines are fermented and matured on both skins and stems. This gives Qvevri wines a dimension of flavour and aroma not found in other wines.
"The best clay-pot-aged Saperavi I’ve ever had was the 2014 ‘Qvevris’ Saperavi produced by TbilVino. It combined the black olive character present in the Vita Vinea with a unique savory meatiness and tremendous concentration. It was reminiscent of an excellent Bandol."
