NIKA BAKHIA - SAPERAVI AMOR 2019
The nose is intense and intriguing of red fruits, dried leaves and smoked memories. On the palate is crounchy and deep, of great tannic vein and long lasting freshness.
Saperavi "Amor" by Nika Bakhia is an artisanal red wine, genuine portrait of the Georgian winemaking traditions. Vinified only in amphorae buried underground with only indigenous yeasts, for long time with the skins in order to extract all the good juice. Unfiltered and unclarified, is normal to find some depot on the bottom of the bottle. Artisanal Wine made with old style methods and Triple A.
