Traditionally found in the Umbria region of Italy, this crimson wine is redolent of black currant with a hints of violet, cedar and sage on the nose. It is long and smooth on the palate, with hearty tannins that provide a long finish. 

This Napa Valley grown and crafted Sagrantino would fare well with typical anti pasta meats and cheeses but will stand up nicely to a thick-cut, grilled steak.  

THE VINTAGE

Cool temperatures in 2010 led to a long growing season.  A post-verasion heat spike briefly accelerated ripening before cooler than normal temperatures returned, allowing the grapes to ripen at their leisure.  Sagrantino is always a late ripener and in 2010 it was again one of the last varietals to come into the winery.

WINEMAKING

Our Sagrantino was hand-picked and destemmed into a small open-top fermentor.  The must was gently punched down throughout the 27-day maceration.  The fermented wine went into new and once-used French oak barrels for 24 months maturation before bottling without fining or filtration.

TASTING NOTES

This crimson wine is redolent of black currant with a hints of violet, cedar and sage on the nose.  It is long and smooth on the palate, with hearty tannins that provide a long finish.
