2016 Montefalco Sagrantino 'Sacrantino'
2018 Montefalco Sagrantino 'Sacrantino'
100% Sagrantino matured in 26 hl. Austrian botti; Medium-intense ruby red/light purple; aromas of ripe morel cherry, red plum, violet and a hint of glycerin. Full-bodied (15% alcohol); there is very ripe fruit, evident oak notes, full tannins, good acidity and impressive persistence. While there is a lot going on here, the wine is super charged and lacks finesse at present, while the oak notes stand out a bit. Still, this is impressive and will round with 5-8 years, with peak in 10 years.
