Colpetrone Sagrantino

Colpetrone, 2010 Umbria
Sagrantino

      "Colpetrone Montefalco Sagrantino is made from the Sagrantino varietal, a strong and concentrated grape indigenous to the region of Umbria in central Italy. It primarily grows in small quantities in the village of Montefalco and surrounding areas. It is one of the most tannic grapes in the world producing deeply colored wines (almost black). Colpetrone is one of the most important wine producers in Montefalco focusing on low yields and precise winemaking to produce quality wines.
       This wine has ample dark fruit and floral aromas and flavors of blackberries, vanilla, and spice. The wine spends 18 months in large French oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle before released. This is an expressive, fully-loaded wine that is drinking absolutely beautiful, but can age another 10+ years."
