Semèle Montefalco Sagrantino Passito DOCG 2009
Sagrantino grapes are dried on trellis, in a place where we recreate temperature, humidity and ventilation of the best six vintages of the last forty years. Fermentation is made on the skin under controlled temperature, the ageing is very long made in oak barrels, then the wine ages in bottles of 0,375 liters. The colour is an intense ruby red, impenetrable, this wine has a remarkable concentration.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

The aroma is rich: bramble jelly, figs and dried apricot, candied orange peel, balsamic and charred notes, vanilla, cinnamon, bitter chocolate. coffee. The contrast between sweetness and tannin content fully represents the ancient tradition of Montefalco vinification. The wine is well-balanced, lingering, full-bodied. Very leisurely, well-orchestrated and not cloying.
