An intense expression of a very unique Italian grape variety. Usually, Sagrantino grapes require aging for a long time before we can appreciate its real identity being a very tannic grape variety. The longer ageing process of this wine donates not only complexity but a smoother taste in the mouth.
- Ruby – Garnet color
- Medium to full bodied

Tips by the Italian Sommelier
Bottle Volume: 750 ml
Blended Info: Sagrantino 100%
Serving Temperature: 18°C.
Type of Glasses: Large red wine glass

Time of opening: 1 hour before
Tip: Pour the wine in the Decanter at room temperature so the Sagrantino grapes can relax its tannin nature. I also suggest to pour a bit of wine in the glass to appreciate the evolution of the wine itself.
The colour is intense ruby red. The nose immediately reveals complexity and full maturity. Pomegranate, red plums and blood orange nuances alternate with baked plums, blackberry, strawberries, blueberries and traces of aromatic herbs. Followed by spices marked by black pepper, cloves, the carob, with mineral notes of flint and goudron. The entry in the mouth is majestic, full and balanced by a powerful but velvety tannin, which does not cover but enhances the acidity and the whole structure. It closes with an almost infinite persistence, faithfully reproducing the aromas found on the nose.
Perfect pairing with Salami, Bistecca, Rich Pasta and Aged Cheeses.
