Overview

Classification: Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG, Umbria

If Tabarrini wines are considered extreme, this label is even more so! A product of deep clay and a magnificent southern exposure, this wine is made from grapes of exceptional maturity. The resulting wine is aged in French barriques and refined for many months in the bottle, and is not marketed (uniquely for a Sagrantino) until 6 years after harvest. A muscular and powerufl red, incredibuly complex, huge, with superb tannin and longevity.

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.

Colour

The colour is almost impenetrable.

Aroma

Rich perfume, mastefully playing on nuances of chocolate, vanilla and a riot of black fruit.

Palate

The palate follows the allomatic progression, and the power is never an end in itself, but is desgined to evolve and mature over time. Susbstantial and structured, with refined tannin and infinite length expression.

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.
