Saperavi grape variety

Saperavi, meaning “something to color with,” is Georgia’s leading red grape variety. A very old variety, it is Georgia’s most widely planted red grape. Saperavi can be dry, semisweet, full-on sweet, or fortied. Regardless of how produced, this tenturier variety gives wines that are inky, often fully opaque, with aromas of dark berries, licorice, grilled meat, tobacco, chocolate and spices. Texturally, the wine is sappy and tannic, with considerable acidity; alcohol levels can range from 12-15%.
Usage: Red dry wine “Saperavi” (often with riper, more intense avors).
