Why is it that no one seems to know about these wines? Perhaps because they come from Umbria, a region as idyllic as Tuscany, with the same perfect little villages perched on hills, the same incredible churches, and paintings, and food. Umbria has everything that Tuscany does in fact, with the exception of crowds and…well, Florence! Sagrantino is a centuries-old grape that only Umbria can lay claim to. This wine, made from 100% sagrantino, has a deep red color with hints of violet and an aroma of wild berries and a whiff of vanilla from barrique aging. On the palate it is big, mouth-filling and warm--a bear-hug of a wine but with an elegant, dry finish that speaks of wild herbs and forest floor. Serious stuff, and age worthy too, though with roasted, rosemary-flecked meat it's also wonderful right now.
