Put 6 kupati sausages in a saucepan filled with Saperavi wine. The sausages should
be steeped in the liquid. Then put the saucepan on the heat and boil the contents. Turn the sides of the Kupatis frequently and let every part of the sausages absorb the Saperavi. After the wine has reduced by half, the dish will be ready.

The Saperavi wine can be replaced with any other red grape wine.

The preparation process is easy and it will take only 20 minutes.
