2009 Sagrantino di Montefalco, Fattoria di Antano, Umbria

Sold Out

Mirroring the sunny, yet fresh character of the 2009 vintage, Francesco's southern Rhone-esque Sagrantino is still composed, with brambly-sweet, red tinted, earthy fruit on the nose. The palate has at its core a super suave kernel of strawberry, 'frutta di bosco' (forest fruit), tinged with baked wild herbs, and an all-enveloping mouthfeel. Gently vinified and aged in botte grande, this 100% Sagrantino speaks of Bevagna's deep, calcareous clay soils and of a respect for tradition and for 'territorio'. David Berry Green
