James Suckling, 93 Points 

"So much pressed lavender to the nose here as well as the classic brambleberries but also some hints of sour cherries, leather and Chinese spices. This is full and delicious with mouth-coating tannins, driven acidity and a compact yet long finish. Better in 2020." 

Wine Spectator, 91 Points 

"A savory, full-bodied version, in the traditional style, with tobacco, leather and earth notes leading to more subtle dried cherry and spice accents that swathe the dense and chewy tannins. Best after 2020." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Color is intense ruby red. The nose offers ample red fruit with spices and a subtle hint of vanilla, dried fruits and chocolate. On the palate, the wine is fresh and well-structured with concentrated tannins, featuring a long, velvety finish." 

About the Producer: 

"Còlpetrone is one of the most important wine producers in the Montefalco D.O.C.G. area. Sagrantino, the native vine of this area, is one of the most ancient varieties in Italy and the richest in tannin and polyphenolic contents. For that reason, a very particular approach to vinification is required, one that shows off the unique power of the variety without putting at risk balance and elegance. High quality breeding systems are used in the vineyards, permitting yields of 6 tons per hectare, well below those 8 tons prescribed under the rules of production. Sagrantino is produced in three different versions: Montefalco Sagrantino, Passito, a sweet red wine with an old tradition, and the selection "Gòld" that is the result of the most recent developments of this wine. Còlpetrone also produces: Montefalco Rosso D.O.C. and Grappa di Montefalco Sagrantino."
