Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG (Colleciocco)

Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG (Colleciocco)

Wine made from the Sagrantino grape, the native vine of the Montefalco region.
The peculiar characteristics of this grape makes it a unique product.
Wine of great structure, characterized from an obvious tannic fibre and with typical notes of blackberry and cherry. It is a wine that can be drunk soon after the time imposed by the wine law, but it can also be left to mature in the wine cellar for several years, thanks to its extraordinary ability to develop in the bottle.
