A great strong, concentrated and long-lived red wine made from authoctonous grapes, it has an almost impenetrable ruby colour and an intense and ample perfume, with a note of red fruits, spices and fine vanilla. The flavour is decisive, strong, with an evident tannic concentration mostly in the first years. Pairings: Suitable for roasts, game and aged cheeses.

Wine AdvocateColpetrone's 2004 Sagrantino de Montefalco spent 18 months in French oak followed by 12 months in bottle. It is a beautifully layered wine loaded with the essence of blueberries, blackberries, spices and sweet toasted oak. A lighter hand with the oak might allow more varietal character to come through, but it is still a very pretty, modern-styled interpretation of this classic, structured wine from Umbria. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
