Densely colored, ruby red, almost black, which develops to garnet with the ageing of the wine. Aromatically sensational, intense, with notes of mature fruit and hints of spice and aromas of vanilla transcended from the barriques. Potent, soft and velvety, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Pair with meat roasts, steak, matured cheeses game and international cuisine.
"The 2007 Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano is superb. A beautifully open, expressive core of fruit dazzles from start to finish, while silky tannins show an elegant, rare side of Sagrantino. Sweet varietal notes wrap around the poised, centered finish."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"The 2007 vintage was beautiful in Umbria, and this proves to be a stand out wine with enormous power, personality and depth. It delivers gorgeous intensity with pulses of black cherry, chocolate fudge, spice, leather and pipe tobacco. The finish is soft and rich."
"Lots of blueberry and licorice character. Full body and chewy tannins that are round textured. Lots of new wood that needs to be melted into the wine with time. Blockbuster style."
"A ripe, fleshy version, with a rustic undertone of charred herb, maduro tobacco and cured olive. The rich plum and fig sauce fruit character leads to a dark, grippy finish."

Somehow different from the usual Italian wines but very nice nevertheless.

Big wine, fabulous with cheeses and peasant food such as hearty roasts and stews. Glad we got a case.
