Brimming with intense aromas of black fruits, spice. Palate is intense with blocky structured tannins, and unending length. Needs time and has structure to go the distance

Darkly alluring notes of plum and cherry sauce give way to balsamic spices and hints of mocha as the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano blossoms in the glass. This is a deeply textural yet youthfully dense and poised expression, a wave of ripe black fruits, encased in a web of minerals, coasting along a core of brisk acids. Cooling hints of mint add lift through the massively structured finale, where sweet tobacco, baker’s chocolate and currants linger incredibly long. This is a towering yet sleek vintage of Collepiano that will enjoy a long life, though it will require a number of years to come fully into focus. (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2021)

A spicy, inky Sagrantino from one of Umbria’s most iconic producers. Despite the intense tannic breadth, there’s a suaveness to the texture, especially as the wine opens up. Ripe flavors of red plum and raspberry liqueur expand on the mid-palate, greeted by wilted sweet herbs and a stony bitterness. Fleshy, yet structured and lingering.

2003. Concentrated strawberries & cherries. Tannic & powerful. Dense & chewy. Not my usual style, but I like this.
