Tasting Notes

A more modern style of Sagrantino that is aged in French barriques. What you'll find is a structured red wine from the nature of the Sagrantino grape itself but you'll get dark berries, spice, and pepper all wrapped up in velvety tannins.

Staff Pick Notes

This wine is elegant, complex, and rich in tannins. It's fruity with notes of red berries and plums but also has herbal and spicy notes followed by a leathery finish. Sagrantino is a wine with a complex history. Some believe it was brought to Umbria by Franciscan monks returning from Asia. Others believe it originated in Spain. Either way, it has become the most important grape of the region. It can be drunk young but it has potential to age and evolve in the bottle: the tannins will be smoother and the wine will be more balanced and delicious! Scacciadiavoli is a great expression of this amazing grape variety. Because of its tannic structure, I would suggest pairing this wine with rich foods.
