Mtsvane has two varieties: Mtsvane Kakhuri and Mtsvane Goruli. Kakhuri is traditionally cultivated in Kakheti, and the Goruli — in Gori. A characteristic feature of Mtsvane Kakhuri is its pronounced flavor — this is one of the most fragrant varieties of Kakheti. The flavor is most clearly manifested in the fruity wines produced by Kakhetian technology.
