Antonelli San Marco Sagrantino di Montefalco 1998

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite expressive with gamy notes and wild berry fruits edged in tea, earth, and dried meats notes. Massively rich and deep on the palate with a huge core of chocolaty fruit and hints of over-ripeness in the flavors, which lean towards the dried end of the spectrum, chocolate covered dried cherries. The tannins are floating just beneath the fruit and break through on the finish. This should prove to be a great wine with time. 93pts

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
