Sagrantino grapes are almost exclusively grown in Umbria. Although its origins are disputed, Sagrantino has been cultivated in Italy for centuries. Varietal Sagrantino wines usually have a very high tannin content and showcase distinct notes of morello cherry, blackberry, and spices. Due to its high tannins, Sagrantino ages very well in oak barrels.
