Antonelli Sagrantino di Montefalco 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely and bright on the nose with a leathery quality, gentle spice, and emerging autumnal tones that recall tea. This develops some complex and savory tones recalling salt, spice and juniper and shows signs of early maturity. On the palate the tannins are definitely integrating and the mid-palate is developing a smoothness as the tannins begin to recede into the earthy, red fruits and even begin to show a hint of the sweetness of age. The finish is moderately long with lovely spice tones. A complete and almost mature Sagrantino! 92pts

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
