Montefalco Sagrantino D.O.C.G.


A red wine of great polyphenols, it represents a typical expression of a unique grape variety in the international scene, the Montefalco Sagrantino Dionigi is also famous for the variety of its taste-olfactory sensations. It is a typically dry wine, smooth and velvety. It has blackberry and blueberry aromas, spicy taste of black pepper and cinnamon, but also licorice and chocolate aromas.

It is a full-bodied wine with a long lasting freshness, its intense ruby red tends to garnet after the 24/36 months long aging in wood and the 5 more years in bottle.

It perfectly suits roasted red meats, roasted lamb, game and strong cheese.

Serve at 20°C after oxygenating.
