Drink it now or cellar for up to 10 years. It may benefit from decanting.

Located in the fertile valley of the Alazani River in the historic wine region of Kakheti, Georgia, the Qimerioni winery was founded in 2011. The company name derives from the historic art café founded in Tbilisi in 1919 by a group of famous Georgian poets and artists for community events including poetry readings, exhibitions, and art performances. Qimerioni cultivates several local grape varieties and produces natural wine of the highest quality using traditional Georgian methods. The vines enjoy a perfect climate for winemaking, thanks to the presence to the south of the Alazani River and the Caucasus Mountains in the distance.

Saperavi is an ancient Georgian grape variety that lends itself to the production of almost all types of wine: dry, semi-dry, and semi-sweet. For its exceptional organoleptic characteristics, deep color, full body and intense aroma, Saperavi is similar to Cabernet Sauvignon. It is an extremely versatile grape: it is produced in stainless steel or in traditional Georgian clay pots and some producers are experimenting with oak barrels as well.

The wine is rich, with an intense aroma of juicy cherry, red currant, vanilla, chili, and cocoa. In the mouth, it is very consistent, fresh and lively, full-bodied and perfectly harmonious. Try it with grilled meats and rich vegetarian dishes.
