Terre de la Custodia Sagrantino di Montefalco Duca Odoardo 2004

Member Review by The sprout:

Not a professional when it comes to reviewing wines, but here goes. This is of the 2005 vintage, not the 04. Having spent two weeks in Italy, starting in Rome, then Florence, Sienna, Assisi, we wind up in Umbria. Having toured a few famous vineyards and wineries - the most memorable of which was a personal tour of Kendal Jackson's Tenuta Arceno with Lawrence Cronin ( one of the nicest men on earth, and a supremely talented wine maker), we tried a bottle of the 2005 Terre de la Custodia Sagratino di Montefalco - on the recommendation of our waiter at the Castello Montignano (stay there!). Result- the best wine in two solid weeks of trying. It opens up really nicely, slips down well whilst having a very elegant party in the mouth. I told you I can't write a wine review, but if you get the chance, do try this wine, especially if you get the chance to do so blind against some of the more famous wines of Tuscany. You will be surprised, if not amazed at how it stacks up.

<p>From the Umbrian producer, Terre de la Custodia, this intense ruby red with purple tones wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Montepulciano grapes. This wine goes well with red meat, roasts, cold meats and mature cheeses.</p>
