Antonelli Sagrantino di Montefalco 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fairly closed on the nose and only reveling hints of perfume and cocoa. On the palate this is very well balanced with good intensity of flavor though this remains a bit hard. With air this begins to open up, particularly on the finish, which reveals some nice, fresh fruit and deep hints of earth and spice. 91pts

The estate has been in the Antonelli family since 1881. Although originally from Spoleto, the family transferred to Rome five generations ago. Francesco Antonelli, a lawyer, bought and transformed the property. Stefano Antonelli, also a lawyer, and Marianna Antonelli maintained it with loving care. Giacomo Antonelli, yet another lawyer, and Antonio Antonelli, an engineer, enlarged the property and invested in viticulture. Filippo Antonelli has been at the helm of the estate since 1986. He divides his time between Montefalco and Rome where he manages another family wine estate, Castello di Torre in Pietra. Born in Rome in 1960, he graduated from Perugia University with a degree in agriculture. He was president of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Montefalco from 1996 to 2006. Read less

Lovely and bright on the nose with a leathery quality, gentle spice, and emerging autumnal tones that recall tea. This develops some complex and savory tones recalling salt, spice and juniper and shows signs of early maturity. On the palate the tannins are definitely integrating and the mid-palate is developing a smoothness as the tannins begin to recede into the earthy, red fruits and even begin to show a hint of the sweetness of age. The finish is moderately long with lovely spice tones. A complete and almost mature Sagrantino! 92pts

On the nose this is showing signs of age but at the same time it’s loosing some typicity. There are layers of smoke, tea, and dried cranberries, with nuanced notes of smoked green chilies and dried mushroom. On entry this is bright with the roundness of bottle age though the tannins are still present. The tannins and fruit are fading in harmony here and the acid is beginning to take over structural duties, though this does turn a bit loose on the mushroomy finish. This really does have a nice mature feel but the flavors seem to be evolving at least as fast as the tannins, perhaps faster. 88pts

Recommended at Peasant. Killed it with Suckling Pigs Liver. Sweet and savory all at once. But how could the restaurant mark this puppy up to $93!?

Had it with dinner at Del Posto in NYC. Recommended by the sommelier. It's neat to see it here for $42, since at the restaurant it was one of the cheapest wines on the list at $80. It was very, very good, though.
