    January 2, 2019 - Outstanding. I do not know where I got the bottle I thought it was junk based on the label. Boy I was surprised. It is rich, dark, Amarone like, orange and dark cherry, refined tannins, and stays on the tongue afterwards.

    July 20, 2018 - I thought this bottle was a little advanced and lacking the boisterous fruit I expected. Others thought it was fine.

    November 11, 2017 - Opened about 4-5 hours before serving, but no decant. Came off so rich that it was almost like an Amarone in mouthfeel and the dried grapes aspect. Almost a fruit compote or forest fruit cobbler feel to it without the sweetness. Will wait a bit and try another bottle with a decant and follow it over a night rather than lots of air then everyone drinks it at once.

    May 11, 2017 - Decanted for two hours; very heavy sediment. Clear garnet color with some bricking. Modest nose of dark berries. Dark fruit on the palate with plenty of acids and still quite prominent tannins. Medium length finish emphasizing the tannins. Hopefully, this wine will continue to improve, keeping its fruit and with the tannins fading. I'm a fan of Sagrantino and look forward to tracking the development of this wine over the next 5-6 years.

    Sagrantino Di Montefalco and Heart to Heart!, Episode #394, 1/25/2008 (link) 97+ points

    (Paolo Bea Sagrantino Di Montefalco Pagliaro Secco) #1; COLOR-very dark; NOSE-wow; very aromatic & exciting; orange marmalade aspect; Febreeze component; oranges; Rose pedals; hint of funky seaweed on the finish; TASTE-this is extraordinary!! Black currant, sage, dates, plums, blackberries, black raspberries; this wine is almost perfect Italian wine; this is so complex; this is one of the best wines we've ever tasted on WLTV; massively explosive on the mouthfeel; the richness & complexity is extraordinary; but the flavor is pure, ripe & rich; a waterfall of fruit exploding in your mouth; it's clarity , focus & poise is unparalleled; a cherry custard component; this is the real deal; GV-97+
