Aromas of blackberry jam, pepper, clove and vanilla, balsamic notes with a hint of powder. Taste is powerful, yet elegant; bold tannins hint towards long aging. Pair with roasted meat, preferably one with a bit of fat content, game, beef stew.

With a dark, full-bodied color and ripe aromas of blackberry preserves and dark marmalade, the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano packs a powerful punch at 15.5% alcohol. There are dustings of baking spice or bitter chocolate. Here is a full, big-bodied and brooding Sargrantino, of which 80,000 bottles were made.

Darkly alluring notes of plum and cherry sauce give way to balsamic spices and hints of mocha as the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano blossoms in the glass. This is a deeply textural yet youthfully dense and poised expression, a wave of ripe black fruits, encased in a web of minerals, coasting along a core of brisk acids. Cooling hints of mint add lift throughout the massively structured finale, where sweet tobacco, baker's chocolate and currants linger incredibly long. This is a towering yet sleek vintage of Collepiano that will enjoy a long life, though it will require a number of years to come fully into focus.

An elegant spin on Sagrantino, with supple tannins and a fresh spine of acidity layered as a springboard for flavors of crushed cherry and black raspberry fruit, Earl Grey tea, dried rose petal and sandalwood aromatic. A subtle streak of minerally iron and smoke plays on the graceful finish. Drink now through 2031.

This has aromas of dark-skinned fruit, scorched earth and cocoa. The tight, dense palate offers blackberry jam, clove and sage alongside assertive, close-grained tannins and the heat of evident alcohol.
