Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano 2018
A compact, full-bodied red, with a fragrant thread of anise hyssop and tar-tinged smoke wafting through blackberry, black currant, sandalwood and espresso crema. Fresh and focused, with firm tannins enmeshed with the rich flavor profile, which lingers on the spiced finish. Drink now through 2033.
