Riserva Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Rubesco Sangiovese Blend 2010

Vintage 2010 | Powerfull Sangiovese / former notes apply, even after 12 years this wine has a little stubborness that I like. Much character. — a month ago

Cerrete Sagrantino di Montefalco 2007

2007. Bottle 794 of 3,933. Followed up the 2007 Pagliaro after a quick decant. Sweeter, darker cherry flavors. Pure fruit in restrained oak. No funk… Tannins were very present, but smooth, and not as drying as the Pagliaro. No hint of the high abv. Like a combo of Pinot Noir and Grenache, which I love! — a month ago

Riserva Pipparello Montefalco Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2016

9.5

From the wine list of an Italian restaurant I wanted to go for a long time, I was thinking about the Quitarelli Valpolicella 2010, but settled on this. And the Somm recommended 16’ over the 12’.

A real beauty. The brightness and elegance from Sangiovese, the heartiness of Montepulciano, and the power and grip of Sangratino all seamlessly blend together.

Very happy with the selection. Extra point for pairing well with a wide range of dishes.

I would be fine with either vintage.

I'm just saying, the list could have been out of date? But I agree, either would have been cool with me.

I do think they had the 12’. They even have the Soldera Pegasos, which only 1 vintage was made. If money is no subject, that would be my pick.

Pagliaro Secco Montefalco Sagrantino 2007

2007. Bottle 3,914 of 14,100. Aromas burst from the bottle as soon as the was cork pulled. Funky tart cherry, leather, and a little smoke. I opened the bottle while the prime rib for our belated family Christmas dinner was finishing in the oven. We were mesmerized by the combination of flavors and couldn’t wait to have with our meal…but of course we kept sampling and were each down to a few ounces by the time the roast was resting, so I quick decanted the 2007 Cerrete to follow up! We all loved the funky and tannic Pagliaro with the roast beef and being able to compare these two fabulous wines back-to-back was a Christmas gift! — a month ago

Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2015

Cherry plum coming in hot. Dense and full bodied, wet earth and sweet pipe tobacco, hint of clove and fennel frond. Years of life ahead. Grippy tannins that beg for a steak. — a month ago
