Intense, full-bodied, tannic and well-structured, Sagrantino wine is produced from the pure vinification of the Umbrian vine of the same name. It is probably of Greek or Middle Eastern origin and was imported to Italy by missionary monks during the Middle Ages. It owes its name to the ancient Franciscan tradition of using it to perform sacred rites, although today it is one of the most prestigious and sought-after Italian red wines abroad. Its best versions are produced within the denomination of Montefalco, which includes an area comprising five municipalities in the province of Perugia. According to the regulations, the wine must be matured for at least 30 months in the cellar, of which at least 12 months in wood. It is characterised by an elegant bouquet of wild berries and spices, a strong impact on the palate, a significant tannic texture and an intense and clearly recognisable personality, which is destined to develop for a long time in the bottle.
