Saperavi grapes are hand-picked at the optimum of their maturity in the middle of September. Softly de-stemmed and crushed they are cooled down to 4°C and macerated on skins for 8-10 hours. Then the juice is drained and settled. The fermentation proceeded at controlled temperature (15-18°C) in stainless steel tanks, using selected yeast strains. After the fermentation completes, the wine is racked clean to another tank for farther refinement and aging. First lots are bottled between February and April.
