Tabarrini Montefalco Sagrantino Campo Alla Cerqua 2008

Tabarrini Montefalco Sagrantino Campo Alla Cerqua 750ml 2008      
Sku: 1806046*

Sagrantino is the vine and the wine that embodies the very nature of Montefalco in the oenological world, thus giving meaning to the word terroir. Its unique qualities cannot even be approached anywhere else. A new emotion in every sip.

Tasting notes
A single vineyard, DOCG classified wine made from 100% Sagrantino grapes harvested from the Campo alla Cerqua vineyard of the Tabarrini estate. This vineyard sits some 360 meters above sea level and enjoys southern exposure. The Campo alla Cerqua wine distinguishes itself from the estate’s two other Sagrantino labels through its softness and minerality. Some might categorize it as more approachable or feminine in style. Whatever the personal description might be, low density planting, heavy pruning and careful grape selection combine to make this the smallest production of Tabarrini’s Sagrantino offerings with less than 2,000 bottles per year produced! Like the Colle alle Macchie label, Campo alla Cerqua is allocated to Tabarrini’s most precious customers.

Another striking wine, the 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino Campo alla Cerqua wraps around the palate with sweet red cherries, anise, kirsch and mint. The Campo all Cerqua is a bit more red-hued, fragile and even feminine than the Colle Grimaldesco. High-toned, floral aromatics meld seamlessly into expressive red berries and plums as the wine opens up in the glass. An impeccable, utterly harmonious Sagrantino, the Campo all Cerqua is also the finest wine I have ever tasted from this small, family-run property. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

Food pairing
Best enjoyed with steak, roasts, braised meats, fine game, wild boar, free range wild pigeon, and mature cheeses.
