James Suckling 93
Fresh and flighty up front, considering its age, offering aromas of mixed dried and fresh berries and fresh meadow flowers. The medium-to full-bodied palate takes all this on and adds some firm, spicy tannin that is still vibrant. Long, spicy finish. This is drinkable now, but is still brimming with youth, so hold at your leisure
Wine Enthusiast 89
This opens with aromas of tilled earth, cassis and mocha. The mature palate offers baked plum, roasted coffee bean and star anise alongside close-grained tannins. Drink after 2023

Còlpetrone became a member of the Saiagricola group in 1995 and is situated in the center of Umbria, a stone's throw from Foligno, Trevi and Bastardo. After a short time it became one of the key estates in the area of Montefalco, due to its spectacular red wine, Sagrantino of Montefalco. In the span of a few years time, Còlpetrone went from obscurity to an internationally recognized premier Sagrantino producer. The designation of a DOCG appellation for Sagrantino di Montefalco in 1992 solidified the standing of both the Sagrantino varietal and Còlpetrone. Today, the estate consists of 345 acres, 155 of which are vineyards. Còlpetrone produces 200,000 bottles annually, offering consumers Rosso di Montefalco, Sagrantino di Montefalco, Gold Sagrantino di Montefalco and Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito.
