Savaterre 2022 "Maurizio' Sagrantino

"An absolute cracker of a wine. The name rolls smoothly off the tongue - sagrantino - followed by the kind of astonishing, complex flavours that will make you wonder, 'Where has this grape been all my life?' Black cherry, bramble, cured meats, bracken, wet earth and undergrowth mix with thyme, sage and tomato leaf. The role of the whole bunches is noted as an agent for amplifying intensity of flavour and length. The grape's tannins can't be denied. There is structure to burn here, a good sign for longevity. That's a wow! "

Sagrantino is a rare, central-Italian originated red found mostly in Umbria and now at Savaterre. It’s recently been noted to contain some of the highest polyphenol (antioxidants) levels of of any red wine. It is a wine that rewards ageing.

"Although Chardonnay, pinot Noir and shiraz are the most fashionable, Sagrantino could well be the most exciting new driving force at Savaterre....Impeccable wine - watch this space!!!"
