Sagrantino di Montefalco
Highly structured wine produced with 100% Sagrantino grapes from vineyards around the hilly regions of Montefalco, in the heart of Umbria.
In past times it was produced almost exclusively for liturgical uses –hence the name deriving from the Latin “Sacrum” meaning “sacred thing”.
One cannot help but be seduced by its rich bouquet: wild berries, particularly ripe black berries, wild cherries, and intense coffee and chocolate scents.
Food accompaniments: from cheeses and pasta dishes, to rich meats. Pork is typical in the region but more so are the products of game hunting such as hare, boar and fowl. These dishes are traditionally rich and wild tasting and can only be exalted by a wine that can match their strong character.
