I feel like I’ve had other vintages of this wine that I enjoyed more. I remember them having more power and rusticity. It had the tannin but lacked the chutzpah

Was expecting more from this, as I read that sagrantino was "as full bodied and flavorful as Cabernet". The only thing that is comparable to cab here, is the tannic structure. Otherwise, it is far less complex. If you are looking for an obscure, full bodied Italian grape, go with aglianico or negroamaro.

Interesting and bad timing for dinner. Right and tannic. A bit up front.
