COLPETRONE 2008 SAGRANTINO DI MONTEFALCO

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "The 2008 Sagrantino di Montefalco is gorgeous in this vintage. Mocha, espresso, grilled herbs, tobacco and plums are woven together in this full-bodied voluptuous wine. All the elements are very much in the right place. Although not especially varietal, the 2008 boasts considerable depth, richness and power, all in a fairly sexy style for this wine. Plums, mocha, tobacco and incense all add complexity on the finish. The 2008 is decidedly overt and flashy. It is also one of the very best values in Sagrantino."

Placed in the center of Italy in Umbria, Sagrantino di Montefalco tastes like a perfect bridge between North and South—like an ideal vinous-crossing of Brunello with the wilder flavors and rich fruit of the South. We’ve had a great year with Colpetrone Sagrantino as the estate 2007 bottling was a rock-star. The 2008 is again rewarding and delicious. Colpetrone also avoids the pitfalls of high-prices or un-tamed tannins that seem to affect many Montefalco estates. We recommend a decanter for the Colpetrone Sagrantino, but with a bit of air, this wine will be perfect with a roast.
