Tabarrini Montefalco Sagrantino Colle Alle Macchie 750ml 2006

Sagrantino is the vine and the wine that embodies the very nature of Montefalco in the oenological world, thus giving meaning to the word terroir. Its unique qualities cannot even be approached anywhere else. A new emotion in every sip.

Tasting notes
A DOCG classified wine made from 100% Sagrantino grapes harvested from the premier vineyard of the Tabarrini estate, Colle alle Macchie. This vineyard sits some 380 meters above sea level and enjoys south, southeast exposure. Beyond elevation and exposure, Colle alle Macchie is distinct from the other two vineyards in its micro climate and soil composition. The latter is comprised of clay-lime with a cobblestone presence. The wine is intense, dry and offers complex aromas and tastes. This is a wine produced with the best of cellars in mind and will compare favorably with the finest offerings of California, Italy or France. Colle alle Macchie is produced in extremely limited quantities (fewer than 7,000 bottles per year!) and allocated to Tabarrini’s most precious customers.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Feb 2013)
The 2006 Montefalco Sagrantino Colle alle Macchie clearly belongs to another era in this young estate’s history. There is terrific density and concentration in the glass. At the same time, the oak tannins are imposing to the point of being overwhelming. Hints of blackberry jam, melted road tar and smoke struggle to emerge, but the oak is simply too much. The Colle alle Macchie is an especially powerful, structured wine with the tannins of the past. It will be interesting to see where this, the estate’s top bottling, goes over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021.

Food pairing
Best enjoyed with steak, roasts, braised meats, fine game and mature cheeses.
