Woodland aromas of lavender and brambleberries beneath a canopy of wild cherries set the scene for this savory, full-bodied Sagrantino. A varietal unique to Umbria, law requires an aging of at least 30 months before release, and full enjoyment demands another decade in the bottle. This is a gem you didn’t even know you were waiting for!
So much pressed lavender to the nose here as well as the classic brambleberries but also some hints of sour cherries, leather and Chinese spices. This is full and delicious with moath-coating tannins, driven acidity and a compact yet long finish.
