This wine is a little unusual for Mitolo with the brooding and savoury characters of sagrantino trumping their typically slick winemaking style. It is deeply coloured but also slightly reserved at the moment with aromas of baked earth, black cherry and spice plus well-balanced oak. The palate is then darker and more intense – rustic and generous fruits are joined by significant well integrated tannins providing a chewy food friendly style with good aging potential. It finishes well-balanced and with exceptional length suggesting this wine will age very well. Drink it up in five to ten years time with spit-roasted lamb.
