About Wine
The Jakeli brothers source their Sapervai from the endemic Khashmi region, a small village in the foothills of the Tsiv Gombori mountain range. They dry farm their vines organically (certified by Caukacert since 2009), and keep sulfur use to a minimum.

Tasting Notes
From Dave McIntyre at the Washington Post "Rich and intense, this smoky, beefy red benefits from decanting several hours in advance of dinner – and it’s pretty darn good the day after opening, too, when it takes on a silky texture. Jakeli shows saperavi’s potential as a top-tier wine."
