  • Score: 91 Vintage 2012 Vinous Media A darkly alluring bouquet of ripe woodland berries, crushed rocks and forest floor is lifted by a hint of mentholated herbs as the 2012 Sagrantino di Montefalco smolders up the glass. Rich balsamic spices and mocha giving way to black cherries and a hint of sour citrus. This is persistent and structured, though not painfully so, leaving a staining of blue and red fruits to linger long. The 2012 will make for a good option to drink over the medium term while waiting for the more structured vintages to mature. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2012 James Suckling Quite a meaty and lightly herbal rendition of sagrantino, this trades in peperoncino, pine cones and earth. Full-bodied and round with resolved, though drying tannins. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2011 Vinous Media A seductive bouquet of sweet cherries and plums, crushed stone, tobacco and hints of fresh oregano wafts up from the 2011 Montefalco Sagrantino. It’s soft and pliant in feel, lacking the concentration you’d expect from the variety, yet leaning more on purity of fruit and minerality to impress. Its tannic structure comes forward toward the close, resonating throughout the long finale, where inner rose tones and hints of savory spice linger. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
