Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% Fresh and lively, with intense aromas of blackberry, cherry and purple fruit, with floral, rose-scented notes. Immaculately balanced on the palate, clean and persistent with soft, round Sangiovese tannins.
Sangiovese is by far and away Italy’s most widespreadgrape variety. It accounts for a staggering 71,000 hectares of vineyards, equivalent to 11% of total plantings. The best known of these are obviously Tuscan, as Sangiovese is the grape of the region’s high-profile DOCGs (Chianti, Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino) but it is also the most planted variety in the neighbouring regions of Umbria, Marche and Romagna, resulting in Sangiovese wine production with a distinctive characteristics unique to their own locality. For best results decant into a carafe or decanter - or just nice big wine glasses (tulip-shaped are ideal, as they serve to focus those lovely aromas!) - this helps you maximise the perfumes and textures.
Rich in tannins with an explosion of flavour!
Sagrantino di Montefalco is the name given to Italian wines made with Sagrantino grapes in and around the comune of Montefalco in the province of Perugia, Umbria. The wines gained DOCG status, the highest-ranking category of Italian wine denominations.
Montefalco Rosso is bold and structured. It can be enjoyed itself or with red meats, charcuterie and aged cheeses.
This wine is a balance between three grapes: Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot. But the general trend is that the Montefalco Rosso is dominated by Sangiovese, while Sagrantino adds an intense dark color. Finally, Merlot is used to smooth the edges with its fruitly flavour.
