Sagrantino is a deeply colored, red wine grape variety grown mainly in the Umbria region of Central Italy. It is often described as Italy's most tannic variety and gives rise to wines with a very dark purple color. The nose is characterized by aromas of red fruits, cinnamon and earth. On the palate it is full and ample, with a warm, long finish. Its pronounced tannic structure is thundering, but seductive and leaves a lasting impression.
Sagrantino was born as a wine to combine with lamb and the classic Umbrian Easter cake, but it is also perfect paired with grilled meat, brisket, pulled pork, hamburgers with melted brie, red meats, game and aged cheeses.
