Sagrantino, indigenous to the tiny Montefalco commune of Umbria, where the grape nearly went extinct, before being resurrected in the 1960s by a group of local growers who believed in the potential of this bold and complex varietal. One glass of Paolo Bea’s Montefalco Sagrantino and Ridge was a believer too. It is the most tannic grape in the world and is capable of making powerful wines of incredible depth and finesse.

It is the reason why we make wine at DaVero.
