"The 2015 Montefalco Sagrantino Colle Grimaldesco smolders up from the glass with a smoky display of black cherries and licorice engulfed in an air of crushed stone. This is silky and rich, with depths of ripe black fruits offset by exotic spices and savory herbs. For all of the weight and intensity, a core of vibrant acidity maintains harmonious balance as this tapers off long and structured; there are depths of character here just waiting to come to the surface. This will be an exciting Sagrantino to follow for many years to come. The fruit for the Colle Grimaldesco hails from sandy, silty clay soils, and the wine is refined entirely in large casks for 36 months."

Product Description:

"This was Giampaolo’s first Sagrantino, which brought him early critical acclaim. The grapes come from a silt-rich and clay soil, well exposed to the southeast, guaranteeing perfectly ripened grapes and a powerful, deep and balanced wine that is refined in big oak casks. It is released no less than four years after harvest." -Winery
