Grape Varieties - Sagrantino

Sagrantino

Sagrantino most likely comes from the town of Montefalco in the Perugia region of Umbria although there are theories that it was introduced from either Greece or Turkey for religious purposes. Sagrantino was rescued from extinction in the 1960s and has since gained in popularity to the extent that it is now grown (admittedly to a limited extent) outside Umbria and as far afield as Australia.
