Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) it is the result of years of experience and effords in the vineyards at Montefalco where, thanks to a particular terroir, the Sagrantino wine obtains very original and unique organolectic characteristics. “Còlpetrone” Montefalco Sagrantino is the masterpiece of historical vineyards Còlpetrone and San Marco; exposure and microclimate do the rest, giving the opportunity to obtain a structured wine, with an intense colour, red fruits and spices aroma. The flavour is rich, with full body and great elegance, clear expression of the terroir.

    (2003 Vintage) This estate, sparked by the inspired winemaking of Lorenzo Landi, is the most serious competitor to Arnaldo Caprai in the Montefalco Sagrantino appellation and, unlike Caprai, the 2001 Montefalco Sagrantino is notably better than the 2000. Rich and brilliant ruby in color, the wine boasts the classically powerful nose of raspberries, red currants, and plums, enriched by sweet and spicy notes of cinnamon, cloves, and incense. The dense, muscular, and concentrated palate is the trademark of this wine, warm, broad, and mouth-filling from the attack to the finish. there's only a short track record here, but I would be very surprised if the wine did not last 20 years.
