Fra i migliori vini che abbia mai assaggiato in vita mia. Un'esperienza memorabile che conferma tutto quanto di buono si racconta di questo grandissimo vino.
Potenza, eleganza, profumi esplosivi, grandissima classe e tutto in un calice. Vino considerato con pieno merito l'emblema e la massima espressione di Montefalco e del Sagrantino, un vino oltre il resto, un meraviglioso orgoglio dell'enologia italiana.
Semplicemente straordinario e irraggiungibile, non solo per gli altri Sagrantino che ho assaggiato, ma anche per altri vini in senso più generale.
È una sinfonia continua di mora, prugna, amarena che si arricchiscono di strepitosa violetta e una sequenza infinita di sensazioni terziarie tutte ben amalgamate ed equilibrate, eleganza e classe ai massimi livelli. Il re del Sagrantino, senza ombra di dubbio.
