Sagrantino is a dark-skinned varietal originated in the Montefalco region of Umbria, Italy. There are only 5 acres of Sagrantino planted in California, 20% are from our half acre grown at Benessere. We are fortunate to produce 100 to 150 cases annually, for club selections.
The name means "smiling", and this wine will put one on your face. Ageworthy structure and lively ripe finish. Bright red, with distinctive sweet, toasty aromas and plummy flavors. A blend composition of 60 % Merlot, 20 % Aglianico, 12 % Syrah and 8 % Petite Syrah.
