This is one of the better values in Montefalco Sagrantino. While it may not be as good as some of the very expensive options, it is still an outstanding wine. At age 12, this bottle is just about at prime. The vintage, 2011, was good but not great, so this is a nice wine to see how well one likes mature Sagrantino. Purple in color with slight browning. The nose has black cherries, char, vanilla and spices. Medium bodied. Silky tannins. On the palate, black cherries, dried cherries and wisps of smoke. Moderate finish. This drinks easy and is probably better with food at this point. This would work with wild game but also a sausage pizza. Drink over the next five years.
