Here’s a standout Rosso di Montefalco (a combination of well-structured Sagrantino grapes and fragrant Sangiovese with some Colorino and Merlot) that delivers a full bouquet of Indian spice, clove, cardamom, black cherry and prune. The wine glides smooth over the palate thanks to the soft nature of its tannins.
The estate’s 2006 Montefalco Rosso is a very pretty, stylish wine. Ripe red fruits, flowers and sweet spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this delicious, entry-level red. The Rosso is mostly Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Colorino and Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2012.
