Antonelli - San Marco - Sagrantino di Montefalco

About This Item

Overview: Antonelli San Marco is a family-run estate led by Filippo Antonelli, who has been a force to be reckoned with in Montefalco since 1986. All practices are organic across their 75-hectare estate, of which 50 are planted to vine. One of the region's royal families, Antonelli's reputation has been well earned through years of research in the vineyards, a lineage of excellent vintages and Filippo Antonelli’s multiple terms as the head of the Montefalco Consorzio. The style of the wines shines brightly amidst a tasting of Sagrantino. Elegance, beauty and finesse are achieved from a variety more closely associated with power and tannic girth. Readers looking to understand the more ethereal side of Sagrantino should look no further.

Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red in colour. To the nose rich and powerful, ethereal and very complex. Typically characterised by notes of fruit and aromatic herbs, featuring citrus, cherry, wild berry, mint and oregano. On the palate this wine is very structured, with firm and persistent tannins. A wine that is best expressed with a long bottle ageing.

Pairing: Grilled and roast meats, stewed red meats, game and mature hard cheeses.
