  • Collepiano, Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG — 2020 – James Suckling – 94 Points

    "A dark mix of wild blackberries, meat and graphite minerality. The sternness of the nose comes back on the palate with firm, austere tannins, a full body and lifted acidity. The result is a very chewy style, with a polished finish showing salt, chocolate and fruit.”
