Classification: Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG, Umbria
Sagrantino is the vineyard and wine that recalls the very nature of Montefalco in the oenological world, thus giving meaning to the word terroir. This unique and exceptional wine is rich and lasting and can hardly be homologated: a new emotion at every sip.

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.
A sharp and intense ruby red colour.
Intense perfumes, ranging from blackberries and fine spices, to elegant hints of minerals.
In the mouth, the sensation is monumental and imposing, as it unites warmth and dynamism in an unending finale.
Roasts, braised meats, fine game and mature cheeses.
