Montefalco Sagrantino 2011
This finely balanced Sagrantino layers creamy tannins with a pretty array of raspberry ganache, fig cake and dried sage flavors, accented by aromatic hints of rose petal and spice. Elegant and lightly juicy, with a subtle mineral streak that gains momentum on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 4,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
SCACCIADIAVOLI WINERY IS IN MONTEFALCO – UMBRIA. Founded in 1884, the Scacciadiavoli (from scacciare – to banish, and diavoli – devils) winery takes its name from an exorcist that lived in a town at the borders of the property who used the wine for his rituals. The fourth generation of PAMBUFFETTI family is now taking care of the estate that counts 40 ha and produces 250.000 bottles.
