From $56.00 per 750ml

    Description

    sagrantino is a newcomer to the piggs peake range. we put out an an apb on emerging varietals to our south australian contacts and they reported sagrantino growing in the adelaide hills.

    a quick bit of research revealed that this was one of the nastiest grapes on the planet. a tannic demon that people felt needed a long time in the bottle to calm down. as a result we did everything we could in the winemaking to avoid picking up the tannin from the skins and the seeds.

    the end result is a gripping wine that needs a good bit of fatty, gelatinous meat to marry up to it. something like slow cooked beef cheeks on a cold night would be ideal.
