Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2016 - Cantina Fratelli Pardi
Intense and deep ruby red, sometimes impenetrable to the eye. It opens on the nose giving clear hints of dark and overripe fruit, reminiscent of black currant, plum jam and sour cherries in alcohol. Subsequently the tertiary tones emerge, which lead the memory towards Christmas spices, nutmeg, tobacco, coffee and cocoa. The palate is set on an imposing tannic texture, which is worked with chisel. The body is important, the mouth is warm and persistence is long. Perfect to accompany game, it is excellent with jugged hare.
