This wine is made in a very particular way; the grapes are destemmed and placed in Georgian amphorae (qvevri), buried in the floor of the subway cellar. The environment – the soil – naturally regulates fermentation temperatures. After 6-7 months of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, and with constant punching down to remove the lees from the skins, the amphorae are emptied and the skins are pressed. The wine spends the rest of the year in the same amphora until the next harvest. At this point, the wine is transferred to large botti (foudres) to be aged for at least 6 years before bottling.
To summarize: 7 years of aging: 1 year in buried Georgian amphorae (qvevri), then 6 years in large foudres.
A unique wine in the world, and in a category of its own among orange wines!
