2011 Australia Felix Sagrantino
Our flagship wine, Sagrantino stands out as one italy’s premium varieties, originating from Umbria. We have the largest planting of Sagrantino vines in Australia. This is a deep brick red wine with a golden brown hue.On the nose tinned asparagus, green vegetative characters, green olive, steamy, dusty, barnyard and wet straw aromas filter through.This wine at first appears closed and restrained, however with air it opens up and reveals beautiful aged caramelized characters. On the palate this wine shows more green vegetative characters and also produces a whack of upfront aged stewed fruits, slowly integrating into some dusty chalky tannins.
