Saperavi is a dark-skinned, pink-fleshed grape variety originally from Georgia. Being the Georgian language word for “dye”, Saperavi is a particularly appropriate name for this teinturier variety. Capable of bringing intense color and marked acidity to wines, Saperavi is an ideal ingredient for cheaper blended wines and not only. In recent decades, it has also proved itself capable of producing ageworthy (often barrel matured or Qvevri) varietal wines of high quality. In Georgia, Saperavi’s best expression comes from its premier region Kakheti.
