Winemaker Notes
Surprising blend of blackberry jam, rose potpourri, nutmeg, pepper, pine resin, mint, clove and cocoa. Soft, fresh and persuasive with complex tannins and an intense, persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

Rated 94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Marco Caprai strikes again with yet another beautiful vintage of his top-shelf red. The 2013 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni is a darkly saturated and thickly extracted wine with a full and generous style. The wine is redolent of dark fruit, tobacco and smoky barbecue. However, the real protagonist is spice: baking and Christmas spice, to be exact. The wine is firmly structured with some tannic astringency that will soften with extra cellar aging.

Rated 93 Points James Suckling
Built on a huge scale, this maturing sagrantino has a lot of ripe blackberry, roasted meat and balsamic aromas. The tannins on the palate are pretty massive, but they are beginning to integrate nicely and that process should continue for some years. Drink or hold.

Rated 92 Points Wine Enthusiast
Plum, dark berry and baking-spice aromas slowly emerge on this full-bodied red. The taut spicy palate offers sour cherry, dried blackberry, ground clove and licorice set against a backbone of assertive but fine-grained tannins. It's still young and primary. Drink after 2025.
