Superb well integrated, but pronounced, tannins. Special bottle brought back from the vineyard on our last trip and opened on New Year’s Eve! Delicious.

Arguably, one of the most consistent wine producers I have had the pleasure of enjoying. Certainly bending the curve upwards.

Way too young and a touch backward, but this "smash and grab" yielded immense pleasure for me.

The nose has a depth, similar to a bottomless pit. Notes of morello cherries, truffles and walnuts tease the senses.

The palette is explosive. Hugely tannic, finishing sweet and complex. The wood treatment is impeccable, complementing the wine perfectly.

If you like hugely tannic wines in their youth, take a look at this. But frankly, sensible mortals would take a look at the 06 and below at this point. The 25 anni needs 10 years + before lifting the kimono.

Red fruit and vanilla aroma; tobacco, sandalwood and leather with gripping tannins and a persistent finish.

I love sagrantino, and this is a great example. Could lay down longer, but if I was eating steak, it would go great! Big and beautiful.
