Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG, 2008
Sagrantino di Montefalco is a red wine with great richness in polyphenols. Deep and intense purple-red, with a complex bouquet of red fruit, marasca cherries, black currents and raspberry with a delicate touch of sweet tobacco and cocoa and officinal herbs. The structure is dense yet balanced with rich tannins and great texture, while the fruitiness is supported by fresh acidity.
Sagrantino is one of Umbria’s native and most ancient varietals with features of great polyphenolic complexity: a wild horse that must be understood and “tamed” by the proper grape-growing practices. Like the other Lungarotti wines it speaks a harmonious and balanced language.
On the label is a view of the Montefalco winery and in the foreground, a falcon (symbol of the area) where traditionally falcon hunting, the great passion of Emperor Frederick II of Swabia, was practiced.
