Sagrantino di Montefalco
For centuries the Sagrantino grapes were hung up to dry and pressed to make a sweet “Sagrantino dolce” wine. This wine, with a pleasantly tannic hint, was often paired with roast lamb, boar dishes, or wild pigeon. Recently, the modern wine making techniques have made it possible to rediscover and appreciated the wide range of flavors, the aromatic delicacy and the truly distinctive body and personality of the “Sagrantino” wine. The Sagrantino is a rare example of a local vine, which successfully rivals the great internationally renowned wines. “Montefalco Sagrantino” is a wine is at its best when aged for long periods of over 20 years.
