Wine Review: This pitch black colored wine made from 100% Sagrantino grapes opens with a fragrant an inviting ripe blackberry bouquet with hints of leather and cassis. I also detected a faith bit of oak hidden behind the fruit. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and rich. The flavor profile is a ripe blackberry with notes of black licorice, black pepper and oak. I also detected some black olive and minerality as well. This is a pretty complex wine. The finish is quite dry and its flavors and dusty tannins keep your mouth busy for quite a while. I would pair this tasty wine with a well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich in tannins with an explosion of flavor, this red wine is best understood when enjoyed with a wonderful piece of roasted meat, preferably one with a bit of fat content, game, and aged cheeses. Temperature should not exceed 68°F when served.
