Garrigue and camphor on the nose and a finish of peppered beef jerky. In between, toasted spices and black fruit get busy and a massive but elegant core of tannins take this all the way. Very good Sagrantino. Additional notes of creme brulee and melted liquorice round out this beauty.
Cesarini Sartori are an old-school winemaker in umbria. Their flagship bottle is a passito, the classic straw wine. It’s a personal favorite dessert wine from central Italy.
