Characteristics of Agni Wines
In 2009, there were 6 hectares in Morava planted with Agni grapes, but majority of them are in Mikulovska, southeast of Czech Republic.
Agni grapes have the capability to produce dessert, dry as well as varietal wines. The varietal wine producers include Frantisek Foretnik, Michlovsky and Jakub Samsula.
Aside from these types of wines, this grape variety surely produces full-bodied, fresh, aromatic wines packed with Muscat rose-like aromas and red fruit flavors; which are moving in the wine market.
