Expert Reviews

Violets, tar, smoke, juniper berries and licorice are some of the nuances that jump from the glass in the 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino Colle Grimaldesco. The 2008 possesses striking inner perfume and plenty of juiciness, all backed up by firm Sagrantino tannins. Deceptively medium in body, the 2008 presents an attractive combination of richness with less heaviness than was the case just a few years ago. There is plenty of depth in the glass while the tannins are remarkably polished. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

Giampaolo Tabarrini continues to make some of the most compelling wines in Montefalco. Today’s wines are more finessed and refined than they have ever been, but Tabarrini is a young man, so it seems quite likely the best may still lie ahead. Readers who haven’t checked the Tabarrini wines out in a while will want to take a close look at these fabulous new releases.

Winery Tasting Notes

100% Sagrantino, a lively, sometimes tannic red grape variety grown in umbria in central Italy, particularly in the Montefalco area. Sagrantino di Montefalco was elevated to docg status in the mid 1990s. Sagrantino has been used as an ingredient in dried grape wines but today shows promise as a carefully vinified dry red.


A sharp and intense ruby red colour.


Intense perfumes, ranging from blackberries and fine spices, to elegant hints of minerals.


In the mouth, the sensation is monumental and imposing, as it unites warmth and dynamism in an unending finale.

Food Matching

Roasts, braised meats, fine game and mature cheeses.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For four full generations, in their corner of Umbria just outside Montefalco, the Tabarrini family have lovingly and passionately tended their vines, producing distinctive wines. Towards the end of the 1990’s, however, thanks to the foresight and enthusiasm of the present proprietor, Giampaolo, the company changed direction, deciding to bottle their own wines and to put all their years of experience to the best possible use. Shortly after this, the new “cantina” building took shape, nestling in the evocative, rolling landscape that is so typically Umbrian, inspiring harmony between Nature and Man. Half of the vineyard (11 hectares out of a total of 22), is dedicated to the Sagrantino grape, which has found its true “raison d’être” here in Umbria and plays a central role in the work and the lives of everybody involved; fascinating and irreplaceable. But great wines grow only from a great love of the land. From the bunch to the bottle. The whole family follows this philosophy scrupulously and passionately through every step in the production of their wines.
