Montefalco Rosso Riserva Fongoli 91 Swj 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pale violet with a brick hue. Delicious black cherry aromas are followed by sweet spices and ripe berries on the palate. Fine acidity. Medium-bodied. Enjoy with red sauce pastas or with a wedge of half-aged Pecorino cheese. A blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino, and Merlot...91" SWJ 03/11 A rich, luscious blend of 70% Sangiovese, 25% Sagrantino, and small amounts of Barbera and Merlot, harvested by had in mid-October. After 10 days on the skins in cold-soaked maceration, the wine is aged 30 months in large Slovenian-oak barrels then 6 months in bottle. Its deep ruby color with hints of garnet introduces a fruity bouquet of blackberry and toasted oak. The wine is well-balanced, with silky tannins and an excellent finish. www.sherbrookecellars.com "Fongoli is an excellent source for delicious, reasonably-priced wines from Umbria" ..." WA 06/10
