Winemaker Notes

Awarded Italy's top wine honors, the "Tre Bicchieri," this extraordinary wine is a textbook example of Sagrantino and proudly holds a place among the region's finest. Touches of boysenberry jam and vanilla on the nose; stone fruits and orange rinds show on the palate. Aged for 12 months in a combination of new and older barrique. Exquisite structure, a luscious middle and a spicy, smoky finish. Cellar-worthy.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Sagrantino di Montefalco is a relatively accessible Sagrantino, especially in this vintage. The wine reveals the house’s hallmark perfumed fruit, but with lovely density and richness. The tannins are firm, yet well balanced and the only thing missing is a touch more varietal expression. This remains a forward, fruit-driven style of Sagrantino that is best enjoyed over the next few years. The estate’s Sagrantino is aged in French oak barrels of various sizes. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.

This small estate makes some of the most approachable fruit-forward wines in the Montefalco appellation.

Perticaia, Italy
2004 Sagrantino di Montefalco
In the archaic language of central Italy “Perticaia” means the plough, an implement symbolic of agricultural activity. The plough marked the passage from anima herding to agriculture. The "PERTICAIA ESTATE" began making wine in the year 2000, when Guido Guardigli, after many years of experience as director of winemaking estates in Tuscana and Umbria, decided to become a proprietor. The choice of the territory could not have been another. "MONTEFALCO", an area already known for the great potential and personality of the local grape variety "SAGRANTINO" was chosen. The farm was originally about 20 hectares of which 2.5were olives trees and 1.5 were vineyard. This has now been transformed by the planting of 14 hectares of vineyards and the building of a modern winemaking cellar. The wines are aged in small barrels of French oak, in barriques or in tonneaux, in the 18th century cellar under the proprietor’s home in the small medieval village, Gualdo Cattaneo. The vines are all planted on a hillside with a gentle slope and are at 300 to 350 meters above sea level. The vineyards face predominantly southwest. The soil is of a medium consistency with the presence of stones which favor good water drainage. These are all indispensable elements for obtaining a grape of excellent quality

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular and age-worthy wines at its best. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
