Sagrantino

Arnaldo-Caprai

Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2016

Total stunner - best red wine I’ve had recently. Strong, yet elegant, with notes of sour cherry, plum, herbs, balsamic, incense, dried flowers, pipe tobacco, and something else new every time you go back - serious complexity. Very structured on the palate without becoming too much. Time will improve things here but it’s profound now. Opened to go with a pizza on a Monday night - wasn’t expecting all this. Wow. — a day ago

Cerrete Sagrantino di Montefalco 2010

Big wine. Still dominating all foods on day three. Nearly oxidative, a pleasant dusty-ness evokes my grandmother’s cedar jewelry box. — 10 hours ago

Adanti

Arquata Sagrantino di Montefalco 2010

Comparing two 2010 Sagrantino di Montefalcos. Both opened for an hour first. I thought the Adanti was a bit softer and more aromatic at first. But the Perticaia had more structure, depth and complexity. Decanted the Perticaia for dinner (only have one decanter) and it improved even more. In the past I thought the Adanti had quite a tannic punch. That has faded over the 3 years since I last opened one. — 18 days ago
