  • This amber wine is made in a very peculiar way; the famous local Ribolla grapes are destemmed, crushed and placed in the Georgian amphoras (called qvevri), which are buried straight in the soil of the underground cellar. It's environment - the Earth - naturally controls the fermentation temperature. After 6-7 months of macerated alcoholic fermentation and malolactic transformation, and having periodic punchdowns to submerge the skins cap to the bottom, the amphoras are emptied and cleaned, and after pressing in a small vertical press placed conveniently in the cellar, the wine returns the the qvevris for further aging of some 5-6 months until the new harvest takes pace. The wine is then racked into big Italian botti (big volume oak casks) for further aging and fining for at least 6 years before bottling.

    In short: the wine spent over 6 months on the skins, in total of 1 year in underground amphoras, and also has 6 years of aging in bog oak casks. 

    A unique wine, and of it's own class in the orange wine world!
