Sagrantino

It is impossible to name Sagrantino and not to think immediately of its territory of origin, Montefalco.

It is an ancient grape variety, whose traces date back as far as the first century A.D. It has always remained well anchored in the area that saw its birth, and which represents its natural habitat.

Although the "Dry" version currently prevails in the Sagrantino area, the wine was born as "Sweet". In the past, in fact, Sagrantino was produced exclusively in the "Passito" type, therefore obtained by drying the grapes on wooden racks.

This production technique was very suitable for Sagrantino grapes, capable of drying for months without rotting, and with the grapes that keep the sugar component intact for a long time.

In 1992 Sagrantino di Montefalco became the twelfth Italian wine to obtain the DOCG and is now recognized as one of the flags of Italian wine in the world.

It is a vine grown almost exclusively in the territory of Montefalco, in the province of Perugia. Sagrantino gives rise to a dark ruby red wine characterized by fruity and spicy scents, with a great structure as well as with a rich and inimitable tannic texture. In the passito version it gives wines of extraordinary intensity and complexity, where the sweetness perfectly balances its hardest natural parts. It's a wine particularly suitable for long ageing.
