2011 Scacciadiavoli Sagrantino di Montefalco

SKU #1346408 92 points Wine Spectator

 This finely balanced Sagrantino layers creamy tannins with a pretty array of raspberry ganache, fig cake and dried sage flavors, accented by aromatic hints of rose petal and spice. Elegant and lightly juicy, with a subtle mineral streak that gains momentum on the finish. Drink now through 2027. *Top 100 Wines of 2017* (AN)  (4/2017)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2011 Montefalco Rosso is redolent of dark fruit and spice that are nicely contrasted against each other. This is a big-boned wine that shows generous intensity and lingering note of spice and tobacco. The 2011 vintage heat is evident thanks to black cherry and raspberry marmalade. This edition shows a great leap in balance and intensity compared to past vintages. (ML)  (3/2016)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
