GALLONI - The 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino is a very pretty and delicate wine. Finessed, silky tannins that are almost rarely seen in Sagrantino support expressive layers of fruit. Overall the 2008 is the mid-weight gracious Sagrantino best suited to drinking over the next few years, as it doesn't have the structure, stuffing or personality to make old bones. Still, there is a lot to like. Hints of licorice, leather, tobacco and a host of dark aromas and flavors wrap around the finish.

The Story

Milziade Antano, Umbria

Producer

Milziade Antano, Umbria

The Milziade Antano family of Fattoria Colleallodole have been associated with the Umbrian story of Montefalco and its Sagrantino grapes since the beginning. Initially as mezzadri (share-croppers), then in 1969 becoming land owners of 30 ha of prime, stony clay based land for vines and livestock on the road between Bevagna and Montefalco at 265 msl.

1975 saw the first vinification of the family’s wines, while it was not until the 1980s, that son Francesco (pictured right with his mother and his son Giordano) began to age and bottle the wines under their own label. Now the estate measures 40ha, of which 15 is planted with vines.
The wines are traditionally made, harvested at modest yields of c. 40 hl/ha, fermented and MLF in stainless-steel, aged for up to 36 months in large slavonian oak botte plus 12 months bottle ageing.

The Montefalco Rosso is an early drinking style while the ‘vigna/cru’ Colleallodole Sagrantino di Montefalco, so named in homage to the heights that the local skylark climbs, is born of the estate’s finest, oldest vines, and produced in tiny quantities (1500 bottles).

Grape

Sagrantino

Sagrantino

Of the many native red grape wines recently revived in Italy, Sagrantino, the main grape component in Sagrantino di Montefalco - Umbria's flagship wine appellation - is one of the most distinctive. With its impressive complexity and longevity, it has the qualities to become the region's most famous wine, despite the fact that this low-yielding Sagrantino grape makes up a mere 6% of Umbria's total wine production.

Sagrantino of Montefalco has one of the lowest maximum yields at 48 hl/ha, and must be aged for 30 months pre-release, of which 12 months must be in wood - increasingly French barriques. It is garnet-red with muscular tannins and full body, a subtle scent of violet petals, an aroma and bouquet reminiscent of blackberries. Montefalco Rosso is an earlier drinking blend of Sangiovese (60-70%), Sagrantino (10-15%), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot (15-30%).

The Sagrantino grape reaches its apogee as a passito style wine, produced from partially dried grapes: full-bodied, mellow, spicy, with robust alcoholic strength of over 14 %, and a garnet red colour. The trend towards dry/Secco wines has only outstripped the sweet over the past 15 - 20 years.

With its impressive complexity and longevity, it has the qualities to become the region's most famous wine, despite the fact that this low-yielding Sagrantino grape makes up a mere 6% of Umbria's total wine production.

The vinous reputation of central Italy rests on long-established commercial wines such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino or Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, based on the "omnipresent" Sangiovese grape and its clones, but Sagrantino of Montefalco can hold its own in any confrontation.
