Small Batch Wines | 2009 Sagrantino
James Halliday 2012 Aust Wine Companion, 88 points
This is a full-blooded version of sagrantino, very different to the Chalmers wine of the same vintage; here you can sense the approaching thunder of the tannins and the muscular, full-bodied black fruits

Deep dark maroon.
Lifted floral violet like notes, Christmas cake and earthy spice.
Quite a different palate structure to the varieties we are used to in Australia, this Sagrantino has beautiful floral tannins, loads of savoury fruit and a fresh acid line. Best enjoyed over a shared meal with friends.
