Winemaker Notes

Color is intense ruby red. The nose offers ample red fruit with spices and a subtle hint of vanilla, dried fruits and chocolate. On the palate, the wine is fresh and well-structured with concentrated tannins, featuring a long, velvety finish.

Excellent for pairing with roasts, game and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling
So much pressed lavender to the nose here as well as the classic brambleberries but also some hints of sour cherries, leather and Chinese spices. This is full and delicious with moath-coating tannins, driven acidity and a compact yet long finish. Better in 2020.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A savory, full-bodied version, in the traditional style, with tobacco, leather and earth notes leading to more subtle dried cherry and spice accents that swathe the dense and chewy tannins. Best after 2020.
D 90
Decanter

Fragrant with floral notes, redcurrants, blackberries and Christmas pudding raisins and spices; ripe and rich, yet elegant with round juicy tannins. Long.

Còlpetrone is one of the most important wine producers in the Montefalco D.O.C.G. area. Sagrantino, the native vine of this 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 "Gòld" that is the result of the most recent developments of this wine. Còlpetrone also produces: Montefalco Rosso D.O.C. and Grappa di Montefalco Sagrantino.

Centered upon the lush Apennine Range in the center if the Italian peninsula, Umbria is one of the few completely landlocked regions in Italy. It’s star red grape variety, Sagrantino, finds its mecca around the striking, hilltop village of Montefalco. The resulting wine, Sagrantino di Montefalco, is an age-worthy, brawny, brambly red, bursting with jammy, blackberry fruit and earthy, pine forest aromas. By law this classified wine has to be aged over three years before it can be released from the winery and Sagrantino often needs a good 5-10 more years in bottle before it reaches its peak. Incidentally these wines often fall under the radar in the scene of high-end, age-begging, Italian reds, giving them an almost cult-classic appeal. They are undoubtedly worth the wait!

Rosso di Montefalco, on the other had, is composed mainly of Sangiovese and is a more fruit-driven, quaffable wine to enjoy while waiting for the Sagrantinos to mellow out.

Among its green mountains, perched upon a high cliff in the province of Terni, sits the town of Orvieto. Orvieto, the wine, is a blend of at least 60% Trebbiano in combination with Grechetto, with the possible addition of other local white varieties. Orvieto is the center of Umbria’s white wine production—and anchor of the region’s entire wine scene—producing over two thirds of Umbria’s wine. A great Orvieto will have clean aromas and flavors of green apple, melon and citrus, and have a crisp, mineral-dominant finish.
