Tabarrini Montefalco Sagrantino 2007 Campo Alla Cerqua, approximately $50, and bought through the mail.
Scored 92 points.
Appeared similar to a Tannat black, but trended sunburst orange red toward the transparent rim.
The aroma was mostly leather and earth with a floral note.
Full bodied with high acidity and strident tannin that carried deep into the long finish.
Flavors of black fruit were verdant and potent while anise, dried bay leaf, and tobacco added complexity.
Long on a mightily spicy finish with mint, eucalyptus, and considerable heat (15% alcohol) climaxed this rather intense bone dry red wine.
