Surprising blend of blackberry jam, rose potpourri, nutmeg, pepper, pine resin, mint, clove and cocoa. Soft, fresh and persuasive with complex tannins and an intense, persistent finish.
Marco Caprai strikes again with yet another beautiful vintage of his top-shelf red. The 2013 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni is a darkly saturated and thickly extracted wine with a full and generous style. The wine is redolent of dark fruit, tobacco and smoky barbecue. However, the real protagonist is spice: baking and Christmas spice, to be exact. The wine is firmly structured with some tannic astringency that will soften with extra cellar aging.
A pure note of ripe black cherry is accented by licorice, rose hip, graphite and smoke details in this grippy, full-bodied red. Dense and chewy, with a long finish of mineral and spice. Best from 2022 through 2028.
