2011 Colpetrone Sagrantino Montefalco DOCG
The sagrantino grape, a native variety of the town of Montefalco, is one of Italy’s oldest grapes. It is rich in tannins (puckery) and polyphenols (the good kind of smelly). As a result, careful cultivation is required in order to enhance the power and uniqueness of this wine, and maintain proper balance.
93 Points! So much pressed lavender to the nose here as well as the classic brambleberries but also some hints of sour cherries, leather and Chinese spices. This is full and delicious with moath-coating tannins, driven acidity and a compact yet long finish. Better in 2020.
