Sagrantino is a red grape variety used in Montefalco in the region of Umbria in central Italy 🇮🇹 The origins of the grape variety are debated but the official theory is that it is of Greek origin and was imported to Italy by Byzantine monks.
The grape, which has the peculiarity of having a very high quantity of tannin, gives the wine a black/purple color with a bouquet characterized by an aroma of red fruits, cinnamon and earth.
