Aladasturi is quite a unique and rare Georgian grape. Originated in the western part of the country it has almost disappeared by the middle of the 20th century and used mostly for semi-sweet wines. But since it has been rediscovered it doesn't stop to charm everyone around. Late ripening, dark skin but pale pulp, this grape is able to produce wines of low alcohol (10-11.5%), elegant peppery and herbacious aromas with pomegranate and smoky notes. 

 

The wine is produced by an ex-cardio anaesthesiologist, Dr. Eko Glonti, that started his natural wine project Lagvinari in 2011 in Kakheti and soon became one of the most well-regarded Georgian winemakers around the world with wines listed in Michelin starred restaurants. His winemaking philosophy includes great care towards chemical-free vineyards, limitless curiosity to grow and vinify indigenous grapes of every corner of the country and exclusive use of qvevri for all wines produced. His medical background supports the idea of health benefits of grapes skins and long maceration. 

 

This wine is made from 100% Aladasturi grapes grown in Imereti region; fermented in qvevri, not fined, unfiltered.
