"The organic Lungarotti 2017 Montefalco Rosso shows plenty of ripeness in this hot vintage, with extra saturation and dark fruit. This blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot shows lush richness, with dried cherry, dark currant and earthy tones. The tannins are more contained in this wine. Some 20,000 bottles were produced."
