Vintage 2011 - one of 100 Top Wines of 2017 (Wine Spectator)
It is a surprise to find in Montefalco Sagrantino so many diverse aromas and a structure of such great importance.
The colour is profound, the bouquet sensual, and the body is powerful. The elegance of the wine can be appreciated when it is young, when both the grapes and spices meld with the wood, and the Sagrantino is enhanced.
But only after some years you can appreciate it fully, when it releases aromas of balsam, and the tannin soften: one discovers a wine of great personality
