Sagrantino di Montefalco 2012

Vintage 2012 / Ha, in a blind tasting I thought this was a Brunello. 🤨 it does not have that typical stubborness of #sagrantino that I like do much. Brown rim, shy smell with cedar, noble. So much refinement. It may be a bit atypical for #umbria but who cares? — 6 hours ago

Tili

Riserva Assisi Sangiovese 1997

Something of a Meyer house wine, even when I’m out of the house, as my wine buds will attest. Super elegant and delicious, still so much fruit despite its age. — 12 days ago

Riserva Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Rubesco Sangiovese Blend 2010

Blueberries and spices on the nose. Took a while to open but started to really sing after 45 mins or so. Flowers, cherries, nice grippy tannins. Delicious finish. — a month ago

This is a tannic monster. Should have left this another 5 years - oh well...
Super wine, but not quite ready.

@Pinotman /// Andreas and @Michael Meyer, for me, wine and winemaking is like a language - it naturally (and arguably) must evolve with the times. Very little in life remains the same - that includes winemaking. I’m thrilled that winemakers are in both camps. There is nothing wrong with either. The benefit for the consumer is more choice. As the French would say “Vive la difference,” without judgement 🙂

@Michael Meyer Milziade Antano and Paolo Bea can offer an interesting alternative to Caprai’s modernist approach (Not to say that AC is not a historically significant producer for the area)

@Riddley Walker you raise good points and I echo your appreciation of Bea’s program. Certainly more traditional, and of course the winery has embraced organic and naturalistic viticultural practices to emphasize those roots. Still they embrace a bit of new-thinking practices when it comes to the wine making (hyper extended macerations, use of stainless). But I love it! So artisanal...
