Antonelli San Marco Sagrantino "Chiusa di Pannone" 2006

Member Review by PanicaleUmberto:

Sagrantino di Montefalco became a favorite the evening Andrea first opened a bottle for us in Panicale. Antonelli's Chiusa di Pannone is dark and rich in color, richer and fuller in flavor, dark cherries, blackberries and a wonderful earthiness fill you nose and taste buds. After many bottles of Sagrantino, we've found Chiusa di Pannone to be one of the best. 2005 is great, 2006 is good... a few years make a Sagrantino better. Great with beef and lamb. Harder to find than most, it is well worth the effort. Or, like us you can make two trips a year to Montefalco deep in southern Umbria just to insure your cellar is not absent this wonderful wine. You won't be disappointed.

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
