Carapace Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG

2009 Italy Umbria
91 Points

The 2009 Montefalco Sagrantino Carapace is showing nicely during this moment of its evolution. The tannins have integrated and although this is a decisively structured wine, it is not an astringent wine. In fact, it is just about as silky and smooth as I have tasted for Sagrantino. The bouquet shows dried fruit aromas with cassis and dried cherry at the front. Background tones include spice, leather and crushed granite.
