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.

Plum, leather, forest floor on the nose. Dark. Monster tannins, very drying. Chalky. Plume dominates the flavor profile. This could easily have laid down in the cellar another 10 years. This would be higher rated if it were older.

Still a tannic beast. But shows pr ok mise for those that are patient or enjoy these rustic style wines in their youth.
Black fruits, tobacco, earth, and oak on the palate.
Drank with a blue cheese topped NY Strip Steak. I think at this point in its youthful life cycle this needs a nice fatty piece of meat and cheese to slice through the tannins.

High mineral, very acidic, mouth is full of tannins...a lot of everything)))
3 yrs in oak felt immediately, a lot wine making practices along with the specifics of terroir. Long aftertaste gives cocoa, almonds, blackberry.

Very dense color from ruby to violet. Nose is full of jam blueberries, tobacco, coal, fig, silicon, balsamic. Acidity is still pretty high, tannins are plenty!
