Colour

lovely ruby red with decisive violet tones

Bouquet

intense, with notes of cocoa and green spices, cloves and cinnamon in an elegant progression of light woody notes; on the finish, hints of wild berries and plum jam

Flavour

harmonious with dense, soft and mature tannins; balanced acidity with persistent and moderately austere finish

Alcohol by volume

14%

Consumption

due to its great versatility and softness, it can be enjoyed immediately or aged at length. Serve at 16°C(61°F) in large stem glass

Food affinities

a perfect match with roasted red meats, game, venison, charcuterie and sharp cheeses but also shrimp tempura and sashimi

Focus

a modern and versatile wine that owes its soft fragrance to the Merlot; like Sagrantino, it speaks the Lungarotti language of harmony and drinkability

Anecdotes

the grapes come from the Montefalco estate in Turrita

Label

view of the winery at Turrita di Montefalco and in the foreground the falcon, symbol of the town where falcon hunting, the great passion of Emperor Frederick II of Swabia, was a great tradition
