This stunning offering is aged in large casks that soften the wine but don't add wood tannins to Sagrantino's naturally tannic backbone. It opens with an intensely balsamic fragrance of Mediterranean herbs, mint and berry accompanied by delicious blackberry, white pepper and cinnamon flavors. The wine boasts fantastic depth and will develop even more complexity over time. Drink 2017–2027.
