This Umbrian wine from the heart of Italy has an intense ruby red colour. After an opening reminiscent of blackberry, black cherry and violet, powerful aromas of plum, blueberry, vanilla, pink pepper, tobacco, chocolate, cinnamon and mint follow. The aromas are confirmed on the palate. This wine from Adanti Arquata is tannic but balanced by the alcohol, a full body and intense flavours. Overall an elegant and very pleasantly drink. Ideally drunk with savoury dishes and mature cheeses.
The vineyards are located at 230m a.s.l. with a south-east exposure on clay-calcareous soil. The hard-harvested grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, fermentation is made in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature at 28° C. The maceration lasts 3 to 4 weeks with pumping over and delestage. Ageing is carried out barrels and tonneaux for 12 months.
The Adanti farm is one of the historic cellars of the Montefalco area in Umbria. They were one of the first to produce Sagrantino wine. The area is also well-known for the lighter-styled wine called Montefalco Rosso, which is not a pure Sagrantino wine, but rather a blend with Sangiovese, Barbera, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Now owned by Donatella and Daniela Adanti, the estate consists of approximately 40 hectares of land, which includes 30 for vineyards and 10 for olive groves. This area has been famous since ancient times for the particularly high quality olive oil and wine, and the sisters are committed to carrying on that tradition.
