Bottiglia piccola come si addice ai grandi vini pregiati. Del Sagrantino si conosce prevalentemente la versione secca e da tavola, molto meno la versione passito, a quanto pare il vero Sagrantino storico.
Il colore è cupo, la luce fa fatica a penetrare il calice, il naso prorompente di frutti neri e rossi (la mora in netta pulizia) e poi dietro profumi che richiamano a un futuro di effluvi terziari. Nessun profumo sembra prevalere sugli altri, tutti si abbracciano in un coro incantevole.
Il gusto lascia perplessi all'inizio, ma poi si svela la grandezza di questa piccola bottiglia. Dolce subito, ma poi sono i tannini a farsi largo, quindi morbidezza setosa e il caldo sussurro dell'alcol.
La persistenza non cede e continua per molti secondi a inebriare i ricordi con sapori vivi di mora e amarene. Un bel sorso che ne chiama altri.
Vino convincente da apprezzare con il cioccolato o un buon formaggio di capra stagionato.
