Lungarotti


Sagrantino is an indigenous variety of Umbria with an exceptional concentration of polyphenols.

Terroir: 100% Sagrantino obtained from massal selection and harvested mid-October. Double spurred cordon; 5000 vines/hectare; yield 6000 kg/hectare. Sourced from plots with southwest exposure, with soils with loose with sandy-clayey texture, limestone subsoil and not very deep.

Vinification: Stainless steel fermentation with 28 days of skin contact; aged 12 months in barriques followed by three years of bottle refinement. Certified organic from the 2014 vintage. Limited production of 20,000 bottles.

Additional Information

Ample and complex, it immediately expresses a range of red fruit (black cherry, bilberry) with elegant notes of cocoa and sweet spices. The aromas are very long and harmonious. On the palate, the wine has a powerful structure with good concentration and freshness of fruit. Fragrant acidity and dense, mature tannins develop, as the wine ends with a long-lasting finish.

    "Another nice, organic wine from Lungarotti, the 2017 Montefalco Sagrantino offers lots of spice, dark fruit and richness (and a 15.5% alcohol content that is well integrated). Earthy tones and some sweetness are the takeaways here ultimately, although this hot-vintage wine is soft, clean and not too heavy, with tight but soft tannins. Some 15,000 bottles were produced."
