Was expecting more from this, as I read that sagrantino was "as full bodied and flavorful as Cabernet". The only thing that is comparable to cab here, is the tannic structure. Otherwise, it is far less complex. If you are looking for an obscure, full bodied Italian grape, go with aglianico or negroamaro.

Heavy fruit up front. Currants, crab apple, blackberry. Strong tannin structure. Fully body but limited complexity.

Big and chewy red wine! Intense red color a nose of red fruit, baking spices and a hint of vanilla. Smokey flavors of tobacco, black olives and concentrated dark cherries. Mineral edge. Very full bodied but well balanced. Not a sipper. Enjoy this one with food.
