A great strong, concentrated and long-lived red wine made from authoctonous grapes, it has an almost impenetrable ruby colour and an intense and ample perfume, with notes of red fruit, spices and fine vanilla. The flavor is decisive, strong, with an evident tannic concentration mostly in the first years. Serve at 18°C in large glasses. It can be served with roast meats, game and seasoned cheese.
"The 2007 Sagrantino di Montefalco is a huge hulking wine bursting with masses of dark fruit that manage to (mostly) cover the Sagrantino tannins. It shows marvelous balance in a full-throttle, opulent style. There is marvelous intensity in the glass as the wine builds towards the imposing yet beautifully balanced, utterly radiant finish, where varietal notes become more prominent. The 2007 Sagrantino is a great introduction for readers who are new to the grape, although this is one of the more exuberant expressions on the market. Colpetrone gave the Sagrantino 18 months in mid-size French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
Colpetrone makes some of the most concentrated Sagrantinos readers will come across. The Rosso and Passito are generally less consistently outstanding, which I found to be the case this year."
