Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG 2017 - La Veneranda

A certain amount of skill is needed in the cellar to work the noble Sagrantino properly. A grape characterised by a great deal of tannicity that needs to be managed so as not to risk putting an excessively hard wine in the bottle that is difficult to appreciate. This operation has been perfectly accomplished by the skilled technicians of the La Veneranda winery, who demonstrate with this Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG that they have interpreted the vine and its bizarre nature to the best of their ability. Vinification is traditional, in steel, and involves an initial phase of contact with the skins that lasts for about two or three weeks. In the meantime, the wine is kept at a controlled temperature and undergoes frequent daily pumping over. The result is a beautiful red wine characterised by an intense ruby colour, with nuances that turn towards garnet. The nose opens with the characteristic scents of the vine, such as wild strawberries and raspberries, strawberries and morello cherries. All this is well accompanied by a delicately spicy finish reminiscent of vanilla, sweet pipe tobacco leaf and even coffee. In the mouth it is dry, with a nice tannicity, typical for Sagrantino, in this case well mediated by the freshness and good alcohol content. A wine with a good structure, it demands a classic pairing with red meat dishes.

La Veneranda is an exclusively female-run business. Eleonora Alessandrelli and Anna Rita Scarca take care of the farm at 360 degrees, committing themselves to the enhancement of the wines of Montefalco and the preservation of their beautiful land. Fourteen hectares of vineyards, in the municipality of Montefalco, are located at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. The soil here is sedimentary and slightly clayey in origin. Another two hectares are located in the area between Foligno and Spoleto. The vines, with excellent exposure, are up to 40 years old. The native vines of the region are cultivated, such as Sagrantino, Grechetto and the ever-present Sangiovese, the prince of central Italy. All stages of production, from the vineyard to the bottle and up to marketing, are scrupulously supervised within the company.
