Antonelli Sagrantino di Montefalco 1985

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

On the nose this is showing signs of age but at the same time it’s loosing some typicity. There are layers of smoke, tea, and dried cranberries, with nuanced notes of smoked green chilies and dried mushroom. On entry this is bright with the roundness of bottle age though the tannins are still present. The tannins and fruit are fading in harmony here and the acid is beginning to take over structural duties, though this does turn a bit loose on the mushroomy finish. This really does have a nice mature feel but the flavors seem to be evolving at least as fast as the tannins, perhaps faster. 88pts

The estate has been in the Antonelli family since 1881. Although originally from Spoleto, the family transferred to Rome five generations ago. Francesco Antonelli, a lawyer, bought and transformed the property. Stefano Antonelli, also a lawyer, and Marianna Antonelli maintained it with loving care. Giacomo Antonelli, yet another lawyer, and Antonio Antonelli, an engineer, enlarged the property and invested in viticulture. Filippo Antonelli has been at the helm of the estate since 1986. He divides his time between Montefalco and Rome where he manages another family wine estate, Castello di Torre in Pietra. Born in Rome in 1960, he graduated from Perugia University with a degree in agriculture. He was president of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Montefalco from 1996 to 2006. Read less
