Montefalco Rosso 'Sololoro' Az. Agr. Fontecolle Umbria 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Duccio Pompili's continues where he left off (with the excellent 2005)<br/>producing this earlier drinking Montefalco wine, with approx 70% Sangiovese,<br/>15% Sagrantino and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (less so in 2006). 2006<br/>was a hotter vintage, giving a particularly fleshy, plump, frutta di mura,<br/>brambly feel to this wine, yet all the while remaining fresh and exciting<br/>thanks to Aldo's careful handling and attention to detail. Bottled in Sept '09<br/>it's beginning to drink beautifully now, along side any Mediterranean dish.<br/>This is how wines from the South should be: supple, olive-skinned and<br/>gorgeous! <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
