Colpetrone, Sagrantino, Montefalco 2007

Deep red.

Opened yesterday - smoke, wilted herbs, ash, black cherry nose.

Intense - loaded to the front of the mouth. Flavors mirroring nose except for herb component. Significant acid/tannin synergy builds and ultimately shuts down the front teeth. Flavors flow through structural impediments though. Interesting and built for years in the cellar.

$30. 100% Sagrantino.
