Kisi (pronounced Key-see) a rare varietal once almost extinct by the Soviets is on the rise again. Vinoterra made their first Kisi in 2006 when no one else was making a commercial Kisi. The 2006 Vinoterra Kisi has sparked a renaissance of the Kisi varietal, now their is sufficient planting of the varietal that tens of winery are now producing Kisi wines. Each year Gogi Dakishvili makes a limited amount of Kisi in the traditional qvevri style with 6 months of skin contact. Kisi tends to be more Aromatic then Rkatisteli but with sound structure, aggressive tannin and balance acidity. It is a perfect varietal for the Kakhetian style ready for aging.
