About

90

"The bouquet on the 2016 Montefalco Rosso is very floral and bright with aromas of wild rose and lavender that feel etched and pronounced in this vintage. The Sangiovese element was slightly reduced in this blend, and the Sagrantino component does come through loud and clear. I notice it especially in the firmness and tightness of the mouthfeel."

90 Wine & Spirits

"A blend of sangiovese with 15 percent each of sagrantino and merlot, this wine has dense flavors of dark plum and bitter chocolate brightened by notes of leafy herbs and juicy red cherry. —S.J."
