Montefalco Sagrantino D.O.C.G.

The vineyard After manual selection of the best bunches in 15 kg boxes, the grapes reach the winery where they are de-stemmed and pressed gently without tearing the skins. Selected yeasts are then added and the whole is placed in steel fermentation vats with cooling and automatic pumping over systems. Pumping-over starts on reaching an alcohol content (ABV %) sufficient to extract a good dose of tannins, which will bind with the coloring substance and stabilize it over time. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about 10 days and the wine remains in contact with its skins for another 7 days. After separation the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in steel at controlled temperatures, at the end of which it is racked and aged in barriques for 12 months and a further 6 in the bottle. 

Tasting notes Intense ruby red colour with garnet hues. 

The nose is complex and strong and is characterised by its hints of the jam, sour cherries in brandy and cherries, sweet tobacco, cocoa, liquorice and cinchona. 

Very persistent in the mouth, it is a wine of great body and structure, warm, soft and with elegant tannins. It withstands long ageing (15/ 20 years). 

Recommended serving temperature is 20° C after thorough breathing in a decanter or uncorking well in advance. 

Paired with succulent dishes, fatty and braised meat.
