    Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2018
  • Montefalco Sagrantino, Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, this fine red wine is offered by Azienda Antonelli San Marco. The Sagrantino vine, cultivated for centuries exclusively in Montefalco, seems to have been brought there from Asia Minor by the followers of St. Francis. In this case, the vineyards are located in the hills between 300 and 400 metres above sea level, with south and south-west exposure, trained by spurred cordon and Guyot. The plants here have an average age of 15 years. Harvesting generally takes place in the second week of October, with the grapes picked by hand. The bunches delivered to the cellar are sent to vinification, with the tanks being filled by gravity. This is followed by fermentation in contact with the skins for 25-40 days at a controlled temperature. Maturation takes place in oak barrels, mostly large, for at least 18 months and rests in cement vats before bottling. Intense ruby red colour. The nose is rich and powerful, ethereal and complex. Typically characterised by notes of fruit and herbs, where citrus, cherry, berries, mint and oregano stand out. In the mouth it reveals itself to be a very structured wine, with firm and persistent tannins. A wine that expresses itself best with long bottle ageing. Montefalco Sagrantino generally reaches full maturity 10-15 years after the harvest and is able to age in the bottle for more than 30 years. On the table it accompanies grilled and roast meats, braised or stewed red meats, game and mature hard cheeses.

    One hundred and seventy-five hectares in a unique corpus in the centre of the DOCG area of Montefalco. This can be read on the website of Azienda Antonelli San Marco, a fine Umbrian company, one of the most representative of the area. Clayey soils rich in limestone that have different geological origins and, precisely for this reason, give the wines intense and varied nuances. Ten hectares are dedicated to olive groves, fifty to vineyards, arranged on the tops of the hills and facing south and west. Mainly native varieties are cultivated, such as Grechetto and Trebbiano Spoletino, Sangiovese and, of course, Sagrantino. At the centre of the property, just below the old manor house, is the cellar, underground and designed for gravity-flow vinification, without the use of pumps. Only grapes of their own production, from organic farming, are vinified.
