External Reviews for Colpetrone Montefalco Sagrantino
The 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino delivers a tight and focused quality of fruit with pressed cherry, plum, earthy tones and dry clay. A rose-like floral note adds a feminine touch. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2020.
Bright cherry fruit and cassis open the bouquet of this hearty Sagrantino. At the back are savory tones of cured meat, leather and tobacco followed by firm tannins.
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.
