Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG Passito 2018 - La Veneranda

It is said that good wine comes in small barrels. And, in this case, the saying can also be applied to the passito that La Veneranda offers in a special 0.50 bottle. Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG Passito comes from a pure processing of the noble Umbrian vine that in this case reveals all its versatility, being able to give great satisfaction even in this particular sweet version. Harvested when fully ripe, the grapes are left to dry for a few days before being sent for processing. A slow process of water evaporation leads to a concentration of sugars in the grapes and the appearance of intriguing aromas. A broad bouquet and great structure are its main characteristics. Then a very long aromatic persistence and the typical tannic finish, well supported, in this case, by a pleasant sweetness. A wine with great capacity to evolve in the bottle, it can easily be left for years. To do it justice, however, one should not wait too long but find a tasty dessert to go with it. Alternatively, it can also be offered as a meditation wine. Absolute pleasure.

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.
