2003 Goretti Montefalco Sagrantino Le Mura Saracene Italy, Umbria, Montefalco, Montefalco Sagrantino
90 points
Dark fruit, chocolate and coffee on the nose. Firm tannins, nice balance and complexity with some oak and vanilla, and a coffee, fruit finish that lasts for days. Can't wait to revisit my 2nd bottle in 4-5 years.
2006 A Mano Primitivo Puglia IGT Italy, Puglia, Puglia IGT
87 points
Potent aromas of black and blue fruits. Nice vibrant fruit in the mouth with a tannic zip. Some earthy components on the mid pallate. Surprised me in the blind tasting. Shut down somewhat after a couple hours. Excellent for under $10.
2003 Pieve del Vescovo Colli del Trasimeno Lucciaio Italy, Umbria, Colli del Trasimeno
88 points
Some green on the nose, maybe stuffed peppers or asparagus. Interesting. More old world earth flavors in the mouth but some nice red fruit came out after a couple of hours. Dry, tannic finish. Very nice Italian blend for the price.
2007 Allegrini Valpolicella Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella
78 points
Not much to speak about on the nose... a little fruit with some oak and vanilla. Entry gives the impression of some possible fruit, but completely hollow on the mid-pallate with a bitter short finish. Pass.
