Curiously buttery, hard and tannic, brittle and aggressive. Awkwardly balanced. Tasted November 2015.

Ah, dissonance and divergence amongst the pro critics. As the self appointed final arbiter on who is closer to the mark, I proclaim: Sara d'Amato! Sagrantino is a big tannic high alcohol grape from Montefalco Umbria. This offering has eight years under it's belt and the tannins are starting to resolve, making the wine approachable, but make no mistake, they're still intense. Complex aromas of violets, red and dark fruit, balsamic, tea, dark chocolate. 15% ABV but doesn't sit heavy on the palate, rather there's a litheness to this big guy. Very good length. Bring on the lamb stew! Oct. 2017.
