Ciao,

Three years ago I released our first small batch Sagrantino, a scarce variety native to the hilltop town of Montefalco in Umbria, southeast Italy, producing rustic, earthy and tannic wines that are often made using Sagrantino. I have always loved the wines from this part of the country which are very reminiscent of our McLaren Vale Sagrantino.

The Lopresti Sagrantino vineyard in McLaren Vale shares many similarities with the area of Montefalco. Both have clay soils, warm summers and an elongated ripening period thanks to geographical influences. Our vines are planted on the area we call 'Lot 10', only 3km from the seaside town of Port Willunga, delivering wines of great brightness and generosity.

Since its inception our Sagrantino has grown both in popularity and maturity, and on the back of the fantastic 2014 vintage in McLaren Vale has moved into our Small Batch Series.

Ourea translates to 'God of the mountains', symbolising the Appennine Mountains surrounding the vineyards of Montefalco, and the Willunga Ranges that surround the Lopresti Sagrantino vineyard in McLaren Vale. It also pays homage to our grower, Don Lopresti, a literal 'God of the Mountains' who envisioned the potential for growing Sagrantino in McLaren Vale.

To celebrate this exciting new release, we are offering our mailing list members the very first allocation of our Ourea Sagrantino 2014.

ONLY 100 cases made.

Salute,

Frank Mitolo.


x 6 Ourea Sagrantino 2014

An aromatic and bright bouquet leads to a full flavoured and well-structured palate with notes of black cherry, plum and sweet spice that frame a long, grippy finish.
