DESCRIPTION:

The lengthly maturing process of Sagrantino means that it needs a considerable amount longer and therefor is harvested in late October. Once the harvest has taken place the wine spends 28 days in contact with the skins, which give it the wonderful rich and ruby red colour. The wine is complex and intense on the nose with hints of quinine, sweet spices and cinnamon. A long lasting palate of red berries with a finish of toasted yeastiness.
