This intense and spicy red offers notes of prune, berries and forest floor on the nose, with a tannic palate impression that offers dried prunes, figs and blackberries on this medium-bodied wine. This is a perfect accompaniment for savory and gamy meat dishes.

For you lovers of Big Powerful wine Sagrantino is your grape!Sagrantino has twice the natural polyphenols (they give the color and flavor to a wine) that Nebbiolo or Sangiovese have. This private label is the same wine that a national retailer was selling for $44! Marketing pressures didnít turn out to be a success for this private label but that has turned it into a bargain for you! The Sagrantino grape is grown almost exclusively in Umbria, near the town of Montefalco in the Italian region just south of Tuscany and north of Rome. This wine's deep, dark, almost opaque color leads you into a plumy, ripe nose that is full of wild cherry fruits and notes of chocolate. In the mouth this is classic Sagrantino, powerful with a dense richness and a very impressive palate display of strength.
Drink from 2013 to 2020

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
