Sagrantino di Montefalco Goretti 2007

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Sagrantino is an indigenous Italian grape grown in the region of Umbria and produces dark, earthy wines high in tannins. Sagrantino di Montefalco is an appellation applied to wines made with 100% Sagrantino. The Goretti winery has been handed down from father to son, a tradition that fully reflects the Umbrian practice of conducting and maintaining family businesses and is now in the 4th generation. This wine was aged 12 to 18 months in barrels and a minimum of 6 months in the bottle. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points saying “Here's a stunning expression that opens with earthy aromas of blue flower, underbrush and leather, as well as black fruit and spice. The palate offers creamy cherry, black berry, white pepper and tobacco, with a hint of clove. The fresh acidity -surprising for the hot vintage- balances out the firm but ripe tannins. Best 2017-2027.”
