It doesn't get any more traditional than the winemaking of Gaioz from western Georgia. Crafted entirely outdoors in the elements with just manual presses and a few buried clay amphorae (qvevri). Stem and skin contact is a focus, and no additives are used whatsoever.

100% Sapere: a rare red Georgian varietal and one of the oldest, known for its ageability (due to high level of tannin) and intense ruby color - this particular version associated with the town of Otskhanuri. 

A wild, rustic red dense mountain currants and dark fruits, a carbonic quality (pomegranate seeds), lots of iron-y mineral notes, pinecones, calcerous, chalky dry finish,  and spice.
