The Sagrantino vine is indigenous to the Umbrian region of Italy, particularly around the hill top town of Montefalco. The 2014 Mosby Sagrantino is estate-grown, a dark garnet-red in the glass, with aromatics of vanilla, elderberries and brambles. The rich, concentrated flavors are big and beefy, with root and tobacco notes, and the pronounced mouth feel is supported by firm tannins. Naturally, a candidate for red meats, pork or pungent cheeses. Fun facts: Pliny the Elder and Saint Francis of Assisi drank Sagrantino, and it is reported to have the highest concentration of anti-oxidants of any red wine. (So it’s good for you!)
We have 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017 vintages available.
The 2018 vintage is still predominantly Cannonau (Grenache), but with an added touch of Rossolo (Mourvedre). This addition brings a bit more depth to our Rosato. Deep rose in color with blue tints, the wine has intense strawberry character and a slightly sweet finish. Delicious on its own, we also enjoy pairingour Rosato with grilled sausages, cheeses, or fried chicken. Serve chilled.
Rose petal, forest floor, cola and pipe tobacco are some of the intoxicating scents this Nebbiolo has to offer. The first sip greets you with impressions of violets, dark cherries, raspberries and licorice. While the fruit flavors remain dominant, the robust tannins create a pleasantly gripping mouth feel representative of the varietal. Although this rambunctious youngster is delicious now with hearty dishes such as roasted or braised meats, the wine will continue to evolve through 2025.
