Maybe bottle variation but found this to be somewhat stroppy, with burnt fruit which was saved, slightly, by some uplifting acids and dreamy dust n leather notes. Want to try another bottle from same vintage.

This was really impressive. 22 years and still had plenty more. The tannins we’re finally softened enough to be really enjoyable, still had plenty of acidity and youthfulness, and although the color was rich and dark it felt medium-bodied in the mouth. Definitely reinforces my plan to age my other Sagrantinos for 20+ years - hopefully they have the acidity to last like this one!

Lovely earthy nose speaking of its terroir in volumes. Similar in style to neighbouring Brunellos but with more depth of flavour. This Sagratino was a WOW Wine for me. The often formidable tannins of this grape have been tamed and this is just a gorgeous savoury dry red with medium + intensity. Must purchase more Montefalco Sagrantino.

The oak character is very clear here, as is the slow aging Caprai profile, but drinking very well now. Except for the dark cherry fruit, one would guess this was a Bordeaux.
