Perticaia Sagrantino di Montefalco 2003

Member Review by tommyvino:

Deep garnet color with an aromatic nose of unsweetened cocoa powder, dried cherries, nutmeg, clove, hay, and anise. The palate hits you with dusty red fruit, ash, leather, and a tiny hint of aged balsamic. This wine was very dry, medium heavy bodied, with lively acidity, high level of hard gritty tannins, and a very long juicy finish. This is a big tannic wine with good acidity which helps to balance out the wine. It was hard to drink on it's own though I do believe with the right type of food say roasted lamb chops, pork, or a nice marbled steak this wine would show much better. It will probably getter better with another 5 to 10 years of bottle aging but if you must drink now definitely decant for a couple of hours or drink the next day. 3.5/5
