Let yourself be surprised by the sublime wines of Mevante, including this delightful Sagrantino. This wine has impressive depth and, despite its already advanced maturation process, still maintains a perfect balance of tannins and delicate oak influence. The ruby red color is inviting, and the scent of spices and balsamic introduces you to the wine’s depth.
Upon tasting this Sagrantino, aromas of plums and spices emerge, along with a leathery scent. The flavor aligns with the aroma and is complemented by a richness of licorice. The finish is persistent, allowing you to savor this exceptional wine for an extended period.
This Sagrantino is highly recommended with red meat dishes, game, and savory cheeses. We’ve even tasted this wine paired with Capriolo (roe deer) in a wild mushroom sauce, and were pleasantly surprised by the delicious flavor combination.
With a respectable score of 98 points, this Sagrantino is undoubtedly a special wine that should not be missing from your wine cellar. Be mindful that this wine is delicate and is therefore best enjoyed with truly gourmet (game) dishes.
