Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG 2008
Pre-fermentation, cold maceration aim to extract sweet tannins, an essential prerogative for Sagrantino grapes. Fermentation is made under constant temperature through a modern system of temperature respecting tradition; pumpovers are frequent during the first days. After the first racking, wine settles inside stainless steel vats for few days, before going inside the barriques where it starts malolactic fermentation. Then it goes in big cask and starts ageing in bottle. The colour, ruby red, is very intense, impenetrable by light, dense.
Food Pairings for Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG
The bouquet is well-developed: from bramble jelly, varietal expression of Sagrantino, to black pepper, through vegetal facets, notes of cocoa, coffe, balsamic hints, pipe tobacco. In mouth you can feel the strength of this wine, freshness is remarkable and tannin is standing ready to face a long ageing. Soft, like all the wines of the company, it has a sweet finish and an unforgettable length.
