From tastings to events in the cellar, but always with an eye to the future: the objective of this event is in fact, in addition to evaluating the 2019 Montefalco Sagrantino Docg vintage, to investigate the evolutionary potential of this peculiar and extraordinarily long-lived wine, so important for the area, in a sector that is rapidly changing face. 

An occasion of great value, in which Tenute del Cerro takes part with a selection of its wines.

 

  • Ò di Còlpetrone 2017: a "new born" which, in the nose and mouth, wants to transfer all the emotion and wonder that this unique grape can give, as we told you in a dedicated study. The result is a powerful and well-structured wine, with a characteristic intense ruby red with garnet reflections and aromas of spicy notes and evident red fruit jam. Such a precious and complex label requires to be accompanied by equally rich and elaborate dishes, roasted red meats and aged cheeses.

  • Sagrantino Passito 2016: Sagrantino grapes lend themselves very well to the drying process, keeping their sugar component intact. In fact, this wine is full, sweet, with a slight initial tannic sensation and excellent persistence. Being a sweet wine, it is perfect to end meals and pair desserts or dried fruit.

  • Montefalco Rosso 2020: considered – wrongly – the younger brother of Sagrantino, in reality it is a wine capable of giving great emotions. It has a characteristic ruby red color and a delicate aroma, which makes it easy to drink. But it is in the mouth that it shows its potential: full and round flavour, pleasantly dry with fruity notes, which lighten an important but not aggressive structure. In short, a wine that goes well with savory and moderately spiced first courses and grilled meats.
