Sagrantino di Montefalco d.o.c.g.

Carefully selected grapes are subjected to a long maceration process to produce this wine which offers an extremely unique bouquet with hints of spices. Extremely rich and rounded by the extended maceration process in oak, it has a splendidly full body that makes it an ideal accompaniment for roasts and extra-mature hard cheeses, the rich dishes of the hunting tradition.

On the label: Montefalco held up by St. Fortunato, from a painting by Francesco Melanzio (15th century).
