MONTEFALCO ROSSO RISERVA D.O.C.
This first release of the Estate’s Montefalco Riserva comes from specially selected grapes from the “Le Fonti” and “Saraceno” vineyard at Bevagna. It is a wine of great structure and elegance whose long maturation takes place in the heart of the Carapace, the Lunelli family’s winery-cum-sculpture in Umbria, which is certified as organic.
A splendid ruby red with garnet tinges.
Intriguing, with scents of wild violets and cherries in brandy, along with sweet spiciness and balm-like hints against a background of graphite.
It explodes vigorously on the palate with its rounded, elegant fruit and well-structured, ripe, well-balanced tannins. Its long, broad finish suggests that it still has considerable potential for ageing.
