DESCRIPTION:

A bold wine from the Transcaucus – the birthplace of viticulture. Made from Areni grapes grown in the Yeghegnadzor Valley on the lower slopes of Mount Ararat, and a stone’s throw away from what is believed to be the oldest winery in the world, dating back 6,100 years. This is a full bodied red aged in wooden, and underground amphorae.
