Chelti Saperavi of Qvevri $26.75
This fascinating, very elegant bottling hails from the appellation of Kakheti in Georgia and is made of the indigenous red grape Saperavi. Redolent of black plum, strawberry, and wild cherry preserves, this shows lovely mineral notes of graphite and crushed slate set against a grippy, tannic frame. This wine is unfiltered and was aged in qvevri, the traditional Georgian clay amphorae.
