      This rich Sagrantino is a great wine to be paired with roasted or grilled lamb and other meats. Black truffles, game and aged cheeses are also lovely partners to match the tannins and body shown in the bottle. Temperature when served should be between 64-68 F.

  • Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anniversary – 2009 – 91 points – Wine & Spirits

    "Marco Caprai first produced this cuvée in 1993 to celebrate the winery’s 25th anniversary. It’s a plush sagrantino, the variety’s typically ferocious tannins tamed with 24 months in French oak barriques. Velvety with dark berry flavors, black licorice and rich balsamic accents, it’s remarkably vibrant and pure given the wine’s intense concentration. Pair it with grilled lamb chops."

    “Pure black cherry fruit flavors show savory notes of herb-marinated olive, graphite and the smoky, meaty character of grilled portobello mushroom. Fresh and focused, this suave red has a tannic, spiced finish…”
