LA ZONA Sagrantino 2017

LA ZONA Sagrantino 2017

After years of successfully evolving Tuscany’s treasured Sangiovese in the King Valley, Chrismont introduced the variety’s neighbouring partner from Umbria, Sagrantino, into its La Zona range of innovative varietals championed by Chrismont. A bold variety, with inky colour and rich tannins that have been tempered by Chrismont winemaker Warren Proft with new and one-year-old French barriques.

TASTING NOTES
COLOUR: Dark ruby red.
AROMA: Black cherries and currant aromas with an aromatic dried basil lift.
PALATE: Blackcurrant and plum fruit flavours with a background of dried herbs and nutmeg. Rich and robust, this wine has a distinct textured palate of fine tannins and a dry, savoury finish.

WINEMAKER NOTES
“Grapes are crushed and fermented in two batches; one on skins for seven days and the other for 30 days, before being drained into barrels to complete primary and malolactic fermentation. The new wine is then racked into new and older French oak barriques for 18 months maturation before being blended and prepared for bottling. The wine is released after an extra six to twelve months age in bottle.” Warren Proft, winemaker

FOOD PAIRING
