    • Winemaking

      This rare and ancient Italian varietal originates from the central region of Umbria with the first records dating back to the 16th century. It is the biggest of the four wines in the Winemaker’s Craft Single Suitcase series. The grapes have thick, dark skins and needs a long, hot season to mature. In Italy, these wines undergo long maturation periods, producing a dense high tannic wine with excellent aging potential. Sagrantino was introduced into Australia in 1998 and momentum is gaining for this variety. Grown here, they tend to be more fruit driven and approachable when young. With shorter maturation periods these have more moderate tannins. This wine was matured for 9 months in French and American oak barrels.
