We make our red wines from Saperavi. Saperavi is the main red variety in Georgia. In case of red wine we leave grape juice with “chacha” only 20-30 days. You can leave wine for longer period; however, you should know very interesting fact about color extraction and grape skin. Grape skin compounds especially tannins have ability to grab Anthocyanins (red color phenols) from grape juice. It turns out that if you leave skins and juice together more than a month, color intensity in the juice will be reduced.
From Wine Enthusiast "Aromas of black currant and cherry set the stage for flavors of cassis, leather, juniper berry and dark chocolate. There is a nice balance of fruit and deeper savory notes, and velvety tannins make way for a splash of cherry on the lingering finish. - MD"
