An intensely ruby red wine with typical dark fruits aroma, well balanced flavour of black cherry and wild berries and body the fruits complimented and rounded by the time in French oak barriques. On the palate it is dry, balanced and well structured.
In order to be a Rosso di Montefalco the prime grape varietals must be Sagrantino and Sangiovese. The character of each of these grapes means the wines have good in bottle ageing potential.
Montefalco, a tiny medieval hilltop town is now becoming better known for producing some of Umbria's finest wines, on a par with the very best Tuscans.
Ian D'Agata of Vinitaly International gave this wine
'Good full, deep red. Aromas of raspberry, liquorice and cinnamon on the perfumed nose. Entered supple and sweet but serious then mourningly tannic with red berries and aromatic herbs. Finishes with a bright lingering quality and outstanding length.'
Bring to room temperature uncorked an hour before servicing. Drink with pasta in meat sauces, grilled lamb.
