Chrismont Sagrantino 2015

Chrismont Sagrantino: Review

What I like about Chrismont Sagrantino is that it genuinely tastes like a wine where Australian meets Italy. Because there are lots of other Aussie wineries that say they are about Italy and advertise the fact. But this wine tastes like it. The sagrantino grape originally comes from the Umbria region of central Italy. It has the purity of fruit that Australian wines are renowned for, and it has that something else, that bit of funk, that Italian wine can have. And adding to the good things about this wine is the very reasonable price and the age. It’s got five years of bottle age on it. And when I put this to my mouth the first thought is dark berries. Yum. This gives way to a second though, of more savoury flavours and very even tannins.

Food Matching | Food Pairing

A person that like wine and like talking about wine will enjoy this stand alone, as will many others. It is medium bodied and will go well with stews, Italian and Spanish tomato based dishes.

Where to Buy

Cost AUD 30 (about USD 24) I bought mine online from the winery which is why I’ve reviewed more than one Chrismont wine to date and will review more in weeks to come. Evidently, I’m a fan. Try Wine Searcher too, though sadly when I looked it was only the winery that stocked it.
