Colpetrone Sagrantino di Montefalco 2011
|Region||Italy, Umbria, Montefalco Sagrantino|
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.
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.
