SAGRANTINO: A DIFFERENT VARIETY FOR A DIFFERENT WINE
The Montefalco DOCG wine and the Sagrantino grape variety from which it is derived constitute a distinctive pair featuring historical and artistic traits of great cultural interest and quality unparalleled in other grape varieties of fame in the viticultural world. Thanks to their composition, Sagrantino grapes transmit to the wine unique flavors, fragrances and characteristics. Not only the composition but also the area in which the grapes grow and slowly mature, even in adverse climatic conditions, distinguish this wine.
On the basis of this knowledge, current experience aims not to change the characteristics of the wine obtained from Sagrantino grapes already renowned among discerning connoisseurs and acclaimed by the high quality wine market, but rather to express its abundant aromas, to moderate its astringent tannins and to guarantee its deserved longevity while fully preserving its qualifying uniqueness. To achieve these goals, in addition to the use of vine management techniques and the study of the influence of different environments, new vinification and ageing techniques are being considered. The new vinification techniques aim to obtain the completion of the hydrolytic reactions that normally occur in the grape during ripening.
