Montefalco is a town and DOCG in the Province of Perugia in Umbria and is the primary home of the indigenous Sagrantino grape. Sagrantino is a bold, thick-skinned varietal that makes wines high in tannins, with intense fruit, sweet spice, and earthy notes - all the necessary components of a serious - and seriously delicious - wine. These wines are age-worthy, layered, and sublime.
Brothers Francesco, Gianluca Rio, and Alberto Mario Pardi established their winery in 2003, reviving a family tradition of winemaking that dates back to 1919. They have 11 hectares of vineyards, all located in Montefalco, which is known as "The Balcony of Umbria" thanks to its location on a hilltop that overlooks the Tiber River. They are dedicated to upholding Umbrian winemaking traditions and produce authentic wines under the DOCs/DOCGs of Spoleto, Montefalco Rosso, Colle di Giove, Colli Martani, and Sagrantino di Montefalco.
Today's wine is crafted from 100% Sagrantino sourced from sedimentary soils on hillside vineyard blocks with east/southeast exposures. After an 8-day fermentation, the wine is aged in oak casks for 18 months, followed by an additional 12 months in stainless steel and 6 months in bottle. It is decadent, complex, and spicy, with ripe red and black fruit characters, chewy tannins, and balancing acidity.
93 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Spiced plum, tobacco, rose and citrusy aromas shape the nose. On the full-bodied, enveloping palate, firm, grainy tannins accompany dried black cherry, raisin and baking spice. The fruit richness easily stands up to the hefty alcohol, while fresh acidity lends balance. Drink 2020–2034." (11/1/19)
