Description As a child, winemaker Chester Osborn had a cat named Non Alcoholic Booze, which the family shortened to Booze when they discovered that he enjoyed red wine. The family refused to let him drink it, so Booze lived a frustrated life, suffering from Cenosilicaphobia (the fear of an empty glass!). Sagrantino can be a ferocious beast as a youngster, sharp and snappy, but with undeniable charm and evocative fruit character. In its youth it shows red and purple fruits, mixed spice, a herbal twist, ruled over by a mouth coating, gritty tannic structure. With time those tannins don't so much melt away as, settle, creating a rich, textured mouthfeel with a velvety, drying finish. d'Arenberg have kept this cat tucked away in the cellar until now so that you can taste it in its stunning, aged glory. This is an amazing wine - enjoy!
