Blend of grapes: 100% Sagrantino.
It is an organic wine and there is just a small amount of sulphites: 55 mg/lt, all the grapes used are organically grown on spurred cordon trained vines.
Vinification and Aging: The best bunches are laid over grates in a sheltered and naturally ventilated area to permit drying until December. After fermentation, 100 kg of grape provides 30-35 liters of raisin wine that is aged in barrels for 12 months.
Organoleptic features: “Once, all Sagrantino was sweet, the symbol of hospitality for honored guests, a delight at the end of meals on special occasions, the joy of a moment. Today, the raisin wine survives the fame and extraordinary success of the dry version, and is proposed as a nectar that recalls cherry, petals of wilted flowers and ground coffee. Velvety warm to the palate, it surrenders all its roughness to a velvety, exquisite, even rare drink.” Pierpaolo Rastelli – Guida Vini d’Italia BIO [Guide to ORGANIC Wines of Italy]
