Sagrantino wine and its flavours
Sagrantino, the sacred wine of Umbria, has in recent years become a cult wine. It’s Italy’s most tannic wine – even more tannic than Barolo. Still, with only one million bottles made every year, this wine remains an exclusive drink for those in the know.
Dry Sagrantino wine is extremely powerful, rich and deep. It has an incredible ageing potential of at least 10-15 years. Crafted by long maceration and oxidative ageing, it has sumptuous flavours of blackberry, black cherry, juicy prune, old leather and cinnamon. Read our Guide to Montefalco Sagrantino…
