Tuscany and Umbria
2011 Calpetrone, Sagrantino di Montecalco DOCG
Sagrantino is a native varietal of Umbria, which, according to some, was brought to the region by Franciscan monks centuries ago. In the last 30 years, Sagrantino has enjoyed a resurgence in Umbria. Rich in tannins and polyphenols. Colpetrone takes extensive care in the cultivation of Sagrantino in order to produce an elegant, balanced wine. Intense ruby red color. Ample nose of red fruit with spices and subtle hint of vanilla, dried fruits and chocolate. On the palate, it is full, well-structured and has close-grained tannins. Let this wine's tilled earth, leather and cassis aromas emerge in your glass.
