This wine is a delicious, intriguing, old world meets new red that was made from the Umbrian Sagrantino grape - which is one of the only places where this rare grape grows.

This wine has an intriguing old world nose, with aromas of dried plum, dried blackberry, mission fig, hard leather, smoky cherry, smoky cedar, dried leaves and cracked pepper.

New world meets old on the palate, with bright blueberry, blackberry and raspberry quickly giving way to old world flavors of dried cassis, braised fig, blueberry reduction, dried leaves, dusty earth and soft spice.
