Wow, SERIOUS imported wine. Not the typical Saturday international offering.
Not really what I'm drinking these days, but for those that like Tabarrini wines, this is a great deal.

I have two accounts- this 'anonymous' username for commenting, as well as a 'purchasing' account which is my real name. Apologies for the white box on the left.

Also, in the interest of full disclosure- I'm ITB, selling wine for a living. None of my wines have ever been featured on Woot though, so don't fear the shilling.

Looks like an interesting offer. I just picked up the 2008 vintage from Woot recently for a slightly lower but comprable price point. Has anyone tried these?

International Saturday. Hmm. Chip did the monkey come by your place? He did not come by my house. Wish he had...hint, hint. Bravo WD for getting a truly high quality Italian wine from a highly reputable winery.

While I have not had this wine, I have had a number of very nice Sagrantino's. They are from a specific area, i.e. Umbria, and thus are quite unique. This is a big, complex wine, that needs time to mature. This winemaker usually leaves his in barrel for 30-36 months and then in bottle for 6-12 months. He understands that this wine needs to sit and develop before going to market. That said, what a luxury it is for us to be able to get these wines which are 03, 05 and 06. Any time I can get a cellared wine, or wines, this old, I am highly appreciative of the winery for doing me a favor.

For those unfamiliar with this grape, I can tell you it is dark, has some spice, reveals flavors of dark fruits and has some acidity. It is food friendly towards roasted meats and aged cheeses. The tannins can be bitter when young, but with this aging I would expect them to be approachable now with a good decanting. Or, put 'em away for a while. They will only get better, just like BDM and other great Italian wines do when have time to develop. This wine is also DOCG, which reflects superior high quality. (A notable difference for wines is that DOCG labelled wines are analysed and tasted by government–licensed personnel before being bottled. To prevent later manipulation, DOCG wine bottles then are sealed with a numbered governmental seal across the cap or cork. Post posting edit: DOCG is no guarantee of quality.)
Bravo for this offer.

No monkeys in Ohio, they were probably scared away by the recent flash flooding. Never had a Sagrantino, thanks for the 411.

I picked up the WTSO offer as well, $25 I think it was. This offer has me intrigued given the older vintages and still a reasonable price.

I tried to buy but got an error message telling me that because I have IE7 and Woot does not support 7, I need to use a newer version. Well, I am using IE9, so I do not understand why I got this message. WW is closed for the weekend. Can anyone help me out here?

I won't pretend this is good advice, but just download Firefox and use that.

Sounds like you have compatibility mode on (or off, IE is wonky). Looks sort of like a torn off page in the address bar, if you don't see that, hit alt to bring up option bar, tools -> compatibility view settings. if it's on, turn it off. if it's off, turn it on.

Nice offer Woot! Quality producer, good job sticking with international Saturdays. Looks like it is selling well and should. Now to scrape up some money so I can buy

I'm really sorry. Is there another browser you could use, like Firefox, Chrome or Safari? You can also try another device such as a smartphone, tablet or another computer. Ordering from wine.woot on IE will only make you need the wine, you know, due to aggravation.

UPDATE: Ignore me and my slowness. Glad you could order!

Just returned from a week in Umbria. Truly enjoyed the sagrantino wines. Went to a bunch of wineries and was quite upset at the cost to ship bottles back to the US. Most wanted approx 72 euros to ship six bottles. Plus the cost of the wine!!!! (About 30 euros for a good sagrantino) Very excited for this deal. Gets me the wine I wanted for a much better price because I don't have to spend a fortune on shipping!!!

What's an extra bag cost?
Get a styro shipping box and just ship extra baggage.
Tax and duty pretty much a non-event.

so, Disney seated us, on our first dinner, with another family with a girl same age as ours... they became instant friends and wanted to go to the 'lab' each day together (drop kids off at lab, go to adult pool, consume adult beverages). Score: Disney 1,000, other cruise lines, 0.

...though, upon arrival at dinner, I say to said family, "..so, you folks like wine?" response: "...not really.." Me to my wife: "..this isn't going to work out..."

it turned out fine. Kids were friends, and they actually didn't mind wine (I think they weren't sure if I was going to ask them to pay for the bottles I had in my hand....) ;)
