sagrantino

2006 Colpetrone Gold from Montepalco Sagrantino

This wine really packs a punch! Rich and concentrated from what must be the best vineyard sites and long aging in oak, this wine has intense color, firm grippy tannins, and a long finish.

2011 Perticaia Montefalco Sagrantino
This Sagrantino is refined and delicious, very balanced ripe fruit, racy acidity, and moderate use of oak. Can be enjoyed with a wide variety of dishes.
