Montefalco Sagrantino Passito
Sweet wine made from semi-dried grapes. The traditional version of Montefalco Sagrantino. The name derives from the Latin “sacer”: a holy wine destined for consumption during the Christian festivals.
At the end of September, the grapes are hand-picked and placed in crates in single layers. The bunches most suited for drying are specially selected.
On crates for about two months
Vinification using gravity feed thanks to the two levels of the cellar. Fermentation in contact with the skins is done at a low temperature.
In large oak barrels for at least one year. Then a long bottle ageing.
Rich ruby tending towards garnet in colour. Rich and complex to the nose, with notes of cherries, wild berry jam, candied citrus peel and spices. To the taste it’s an amazing wine, where it begins sweet and then gives way to a fresh finish with an aromatic persistence to the nose.
It can be enjoyed with red fruit tarts, biscuits, gianduja chocolate and mature cheeses.
