The 2007 Sagrantino di Montefalco is a huge hulking wine bursting with masses of dark fruit that manage to (mostly) cover the Sagrantino tannins. It shows marvelous balance in a full-throttle, opulent style. There is marvelous intensity in the glass as the wine builds towards the imposing yet beautifully balanced, utterly radiant finish, where varietal notes become more prominent. The 2007 Sagrantino is a great introduction for readers who are new to the grape, although this is one of the more exuberant expressions on the market. Colpetrone gave the Sagrantino 18 months in mid-size French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2027.
