2011 peaking right now. Leathery, floral, resin-y funkiness with some dark fruits, tons of spices, tobacco, and chocolate. Full bodied and tannic with a long finish and an acidic through line. (Like balsamic vinegar) It’s bold, but not disjointed. It’s fun. — 11 days ago
Loved this wine. So much to unpack - firm tannins, plush textures, wide range of scents on the bouquet. Really fun wine and incredibly well made. Like a mix between Masseto and a not too sweet Valpo or Amarone — 23 days ago

Amazing. Still so tannic, but fresh, potent, with port aroma and chewy, fruit forward, dense black cherry — 8 days ago

While the nose is reminiscent of Sangiovese with red cherry, blackberry, licorice, black tea leaf, leather, and touch of smoke, it was unmistakably Sagrantino on the palate. The stern and massive tannins, together with the streaking acidity that somehow give the body a lighter feel, extrude sheer power.
Not for everyone, but I do like it a lot. — a month ago
