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 straw yellow colour tending to gold. A nose of intense and persistent impact, fruity and floral; one recognises almond and hawthorn blossom, citrus and tropical fruit with a slightly spicy finish. On the palate it is structured and very tasty. With a full acidic structure, typical of Trebbiano Spoletino, and merges into a perfect and amazing balance with the other elements. Excellent persistence and taste-olfactory agreement.
Pairing: Quality pork cold cuts such as prosciutto ham and culatello, terrines and carpaccio. Serve with first course fish dishes, spaghetti carbonara, saffron risotto or with main dishes such as rich fish stews and English-style rare roast beef. Excellent with aged semihard cheeses.
