    Just had my first experience with Sagrantino last Thursday. Wetasted 3 different ones from Tabarrini. They are massive, explosive wines, just as you said. He gave me one of them with half the bottle left. I just re-tasted it tonight, 6 days after being opened, and was amazed at how good it was drinking. Unbelievable. Still very fragrant, and while the black fruit flavors may have softened, it was still beautiful. Probably the biggest wines I have tasted this year. BTW… I scored that wine 92 originally, just after being opened, and 94 six days later.

    QOFD: Best non-family related thing I've done has been my volunteer teaching in the deep countryside of China. Nice to help people.

    Good that you are going on. If you feel it is a burden to do the show, maybe do it less each week. Everyday is alot of wine to taste.

    I know its an old show, but…
    i own three bottles of the 2003 Martinelli Sagrantino Di Montefalco. they have been cellaring since. when do you recommend they are popped?

  • Jörg

    Epic show.

  • maiom

    You should “poppe” them during a classic dinner based on meat (T-Bone, fillet, etc..), or on easy dinner based just on different types of chease and salami/prosciutto. 😉
    Let us know you're impressions.

    Going through ALL the old episodes from 1 up present. I generally just listen to the episodes. De-lurking to say thanks for the entertainment and education. I also can't wait for Gary to stop saying Rad-ool. Ugh.

    Have not tried these wines.. QOTD-was a Board and Excutive Board member for a Children With Cancer and Blood Disorders charity for 18 yrs which raised in excess $1 million yearly to help families. PS-glad you stayed doing the show for all these years. http://www.winelx.com

    qotd: I don't see how anybody could pick just 1 thing unless they did something like cure cancer

    What an interesting look into the history of WLTV. What a love-filled episode and a 97+ that’s the highest score I’ve ever seen you give. Have tried this wine style once and was definitely impressed- will seek it out more in the future.

    QOTD: Spending time with my life long family friends. The lady used to babysit my brothers and me when we were kids and now she and her husband have 6 kids of their own. Always great hanging out and drinking wine with them.
