A rich, flavorful wine offering flavors of briary black fruits, leather, spice and coffee. The wine is structured but that is well hidden under the dark fruit and spice notes that dominate the palate. The lengthy finish is quite attractive with a distinct espresso note coming out with a little time. Let this breathe for 30 minutes.

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. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
This is serious Sagrantino, which can be rustic and hard most times. Crazy aromas of black licorice and dark berries. Full body, with polished and beautiful tannins and a coco powder and black fruit undertone. Fascinating wine. Very stylish
