Antonelli Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito 1985

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dusty on the nose with a slightly medicinal top note and deep notes of licorice, dried flowers, chamomile, toasted anise seed, and raisins. This remains quite sweet with fresh acids and still youthful tannins. The sweetness up front supports cola, coriander and spice tones but not much actual fruit, though it also ensures good length. Not sure there is any need to age Passitio this long. 86pts

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
