Grapes : Sagrantino 100% Vintage : 2008 Bottle : 75 cl
The Sagrantino grape, always grown in the Montefalco Area, is the indigenous varietal which best represents the image of the Azienda Vinicola Falesco in the world. The peculiar adaptation of this varietal to the hills surrounding Gualdo Cattaneo makes possible to obtain great character wines. The grapes, just after the crushing, remain in pre-maceration for 48 hours at a temperature of 18 °C. During this operation the aromatic skill, typical of Sagrantino, gets set to the wine. Subsequently, during the fermentation of which the last step occurs without any contacts with the skins, a few soft pumping over are done in order to exalt only the noble tannins. The wine achieved is moved into 30 Hl barrels where the malolactic fermentation is carried out. Intense ruby red in colour with bright reflexes. On the nose scents of red fruit from blackberry to ripen plum. The ageing in oak contributes to enrich this wine in terms of balance and elegance. To be served at 16-18 C° in large balloons to accompany any dish of the best Umbrian tradition.
