The 2012 Pagliaro maintains equilibrium and freshness in the face of its scorching season of origin. Sagrantino's fruit character can sometimes be midnight-black, but the 2012 hints at cherry liqueur, offering a bit of brightness amidst the usual spicy savagery. An autumnal spirit permeates the wine, with aromas and flavors of fallen leaves, fresh pipe tobacco, and woodsmoke. Pagliaro is never light and never polite, but the tannins on this 2012 manage to be digestible and balanced-although there is enough structure to reward some cellaring, to be sure.
