Sagrantino is the signature grape of Umbria. This wine combines perfectly aromatic expressiveness and structural elegance. Of great character and personality, it gives its best with a perfect ageing period.
On the nose expresses typical scents of blackberries, currants and maquis, with notes of spice and vanilla. On the palate it is beautifully structured with smooth tannins and very good length.
The vineyard is treated with natural grass regeneration techniques (land planting), using only organic and mineral fertilisers without the use of chemical products or herbicides.
