Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
This wine stems from an antique tradition and is the result of a field selection of the best Sagrantino grapes destined for drying. This semi-dry wine pours an intense ruby red with violet hues and is a jubilation of wild cherry, myrtle, marasca cherry, and blackberry. Its stunningly fresh taste reveals a perfect balance of sugars and acidity. It ages for 24 months in oak barrels and 24 more months in glass. Best matched with tea biscuits, hard cheese, chocolate sweets.

Reviewer: Danny Miller from Carnation, WA United States  
I've never experienced such tannins in a dessert wine like I have with Sagrantino passito, balancing the sweetness in an amazing way. Sweetness on the front, a parching mid palate, and fruit on the finish. The other interesting contradiction about this wine is it manages to be rich and thick and full bodied yet somehow only subtely, tastefully sweet and not overtly so. I did not do a tasting against other brands, but it delivered everything positive that I remember about Sagrantino passito in the past.
