This is everything that you can want in a Sagrantino. It is big, really big. So big, that it is not for the faint of heart. That said, the tannins do not leave you feeling like you have just been trampled by a herd of elephants. The fruit is ripe, pure and intense, without the slightest hint of over-ripeness, and it possess that classic earthy/spicy tone that you want from the varietal. Oh, and it has a great finish. Drink this now with several hours of decanting and pair it with an unusually large side of meat, preferably something gamey. If not, I can see this wine living a long time in your cellar!
