Item no. 100875
Awarded Italy's top wine honors, the "Tre Bicchieri," this extraordinary wine is a textbook example of Sagrantino and proudly holds a place among the region's finest. Touches of boysenberry jam and vanilla on the nose; stone fruits and orange rinds show on the palate. Aged for 12 months in a combination of new and older barrique. Exquisite structure, a luscious middle and a spicy, smoky finish. Cellar-worthy.
The 2004 Sagrantino di Montefalco is a relatively accessible Sagrantino, especially in this vintage. The wine reveals the house’s hallmark perfumed fruit, but with lovely density and richness. The tannins are firm, yet well balanced and the only thing missing is a touch more varietal expression. This remains a forward, fruit-driven style of Sagrantino that is best enjoyed over the next few years. The estate’s Sagrantino is aged in French oak barrels of various sizes. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.
This small estate makes some of the most approachable fruit-forward wines in the Montefalco appellation.
