Food Pairings for Tabarrini Sagrantino di Montefalco Colle Grimaldesco
Violets, tar, smoke, juniper berries and licorice are some of the nuances that jump from the glass in the 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino Colle Grimaldesco. The 2008 possesses striking inner perfume and plenty of juiciness, all backed up by firm Sagrantino tannins. Deceptively medium in body, the 2008 presents an attractive combination of richness with less heaviness than was the case just a few years ago. There is plenty of depth in the glass while the tannins are remarkably polished. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023...95" WA 2/13 "Giampaolo Tabarrini continues to make some of the most compelling wines in Montefalco. Today’s wines are more finessed and refined than they have ever been, but Tabarrini is a young man, so it seems quite likely the best may still lie ahead. Readers who haven’t checked the Tabarrini wines out in a while will want to take a close look at these fabulous new releases.
