Colpetrone Sagrantino di Montefalco 2011
|Region||Italy, Umbria, Montefalco Sagrantino|
This wine's tilled earth, leather and cassis aromas emerge in the glass. The ripe, rather evolved palate shows mature black plum, roasted coffee and licorice flavors alongside close-grained tannins.
The 2011 Montefalco Sagrantino is a hearty and well-built wine that opens to a dark and richly extracted appearance. The wine sports a thick garnet color with red ruby highlights. The bouquet offers candied cherry, exotic spice and cured-leather aromas. The wine's tannic structure is significant, and you should expect as much from this singular indigenous grape from central Italy. This was a warm vintage that shows ripe and evolved fruit today. Some 130,000 bottles were produced.
