Montefalco Rosso 2017

A fine wine trade from cellar to cellar

Lilacs, berries and Stoney fruit on the nose,

Medium bodied, cherry, rhubarb, touches of oregano, dark cherry. Lip smacking tannins and citrus zingy acidity..
A solid Rosso.

Campo Alla Cerqua Sagrantino di Montefalco 2013

I believe this is my first Sagrantino. Supports this steak quite well. Acidic and tannic. 15% ABV.

Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2007

Very dark wine - nice bouquet of forest floor and mushrooms, black fruit - the taste is dominated by a heavy tannin attacking the gums - also some black fruits in the mouth and mediterranean herbes, garrigue - long, dry aftertaste... — 21 days ago

25 Anni Sagrantino di Montefalco 2001

I have a soft spot for this producer. This 100% sargrantino requires at least 15 years post bottling, but from there, the wine sings.
Nice fruit profile of cherries and strawberries, gives way to cinnamon, tobacco, coffee, and bay leaves. Big tannins create a strong structure, from which the remaining components hang from. Hold this for another 15 years, easily.

Sounds amazing, I’m sold! Will seek this out, then try to forget about it until my senior years :)

Very interesting Ron! Do producers typically hold back new releases as Spanish producers commonly do? I have always respected a producer whose current release is over a decade old already.

@Philip Deibel, a minority of typically high-end producer hold back on release. Caprai only produces the 25th anni in the best years. The 100% sargrantino varietal is impenetrable in its youth. It truly requires 15 + years for it to blossom. And when it does, boy o boy.
