A darkly alluring bouquet of ripe woodland berries, crushed rocks and forest floor is lifted by a hint of mentholated herbs as the 2012 Sagrantino di Montefalco smolders up the glass. Rich balsamic spices and mocha giving way to black cherries and a hint of sour citrus. This is persistent and structured, though not painfully so, leaving a staining of blue and red fruits to linger long. The 2012 will make for a good option to drink over the medium term while waiting for the more structured vintages to mature. (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2021)

This 2012 wine is extremely dark in the glass - inky - and bears a nose of beautiful blackberry and black plum. There is a savory ride-along for good measure. The sip reveals a wine with a tingling acidity and very firm tannins - eight years old and it still has plenty of fight left in it. Bring on the rib eye, bring on the porterhouse… this wine will tame all of them.
