Montefalco Sagrantino will surprise you with so many diverse aromas and a structure of such great importance. The color is profound, the bouquet sensual, and the mouthfeel and flavors are enveloping and persistent. The elegance of the wine can already be appreciated when it is young: a well balanced cornucopia of fruit and spice aromas meld with the wood, and the Sagrantino is enhanced. But only after some years you can appreciate it fully, when it releases aromas of balsam, and the tannins soften, revealing a wine of great personality. Sagrantino is rich in polyphenol which are very powerful antioxidants.
