Sassafras Salita Sagrantino 2017: Review

The sagrantino grape variety hails from Umbria in Italy. However, the for Sassafras Salita Sagrantino 2017 hails from Hilltops and Murrumbateman in New South Wales/ACT.  It was tasted with four years of bottle age on it and showed some a mix of primary and secondary flavours of plum and stewed blackberries combined with medium tannins and acidity. As a result it will fare better as a food wine.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
