"Sagrantino is a native varietal of Umbria, which, according to some, was brought to the region by Franciscan monks centuries ago. In the last 30 years, Sagrantino has enjoyed a resurgence in Umbria. Rich in tannins and polyphenols, Sagrantino shows off a softer side of its unique character when vinified into a passito. This limited production passito has an aging potential of over 15 years. Features an intense ruby red color with purple glints. Concentrated nose of blackberry and cherries with a seasoned ­undertone leads into full, sweet flavor with an initial tannic sensation and long finish." —importer
"A delicious little dessert red, the 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino Passito shows great energy and verve with huge fruit tones of cherry liqueur and blackberry syrup. Sweet, thick glycerin moves slowly over the palate and softens the tannic blow. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"This dense dessert wine opens with subtle aromas of black fruit, prune, leather ?and spice. The palate delivers concentrated notes of black­berry, dried cherry, cinnamon and chocolate alongside firm, drying tannins that need a few more years to soften. Sip it on its own as a mediation wine or pair with tarts made with dried fruit. Drink 2016–2028." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
