Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG

Type of wine: Red

Grapes: 100% Sagrantino

Geographical region: Umbria

Wine Description: Montefalco Sagrantino is a powerful wine with great depth. Through increased care during vinification and attention to ageing practices, these Sagrantino wines have evolved from highly tannic and rustic into wines of respected quality. The native black grape Sagrantino, grown around the town of Montefalco, is used to make wines of distinctive splendor in dry (secco) and sweet styles. Required to be at least 95% Sagrantino, both DOCG wines must be aged for 30 months, with the secco spending at least 12 months of that in oak barrels. The sweet wine is a passito, produced from dried grapes, and is regarded as one of the finest dessert wines in Italy’s central region.
