Vinous: 90 points
The 2016 Montefalco Rosso Boccatone pulls you close to the glass with a darkly alluring blend of black currants dusted with cocoa, dried roses and hints of clove. This is soft in feel yet spry, with energizing acidity enlivening its tart woodland berries and saturating mineral tones. It’s juicy to the core and reverberates throughout the long yet mouthwatering finale, as sweet tannins provide just enough grip to create a classically dry impression. The Boccatone is a zesty blend of Sangiovese, Barbera and Sagrantino.
