Colpetrone Montefalco Rosso 2010

Colpetrone Montefalco Rosso 750ml 2010    
Sku: 1859133*

Strong but very drinkable and soft. It has an intense ruby colour with light crimson glints. The scent is fruity with notes of raspberry, spices and vanilla. The taste is full; its enveloping roundness is at times broken by a tannic taste that gives it strength and character. Serve at 18C in medium size glasses. It can be served with white and red roast and grilled meats.

Colpetrone is one of the most important wine producers in the Montefalco D.O.C.G. area. Sagrantino, the native vine of these area, is one of the most ancient varieties in Italy and the richest in tannin and polyphenolic contents. For that reason, a very particular approach to vinification is required, one that shows off the unique power of the variety without putting at risk balance and elegance. High quality breeding systems are used in the vineyards, permitting yields of 6 tons per hectare, well below those 8 tons prescribed under the rules of production. Sagrantino is produced in three different versions: Montefalco Sagrantino, Passito, a sweet red wine with an old tradition, and the selection ”Gold” that is the result of the most recent developments of this wine. Colpetrone also produces: Montefalco Rosso D.O.C. and Grappa di Montefalco Sagrantino.
