Antonelli Montefalco Sagrantino 2017

This is the traditional red wine of Montefalco, made exclusively from Sagrantino grapes, from vines grown for centuries on the slopes of the Umbrian hills. Little known outside of Italy Sagrantino di Montefalco is characterised by its great structure and capacity for longevity. Antonelli's organically grown Sagrantino grapes undergo gravity-fed fermentation in contact with the skins, thereafter clarification occurs spontaneously without the need for clarification. The wine is then matured in large oak barrels for at least 18 months and then settles in glass lined cement vats for some months before being bottled. Sagrantino di Montefalco requires a minimum 37 months ageing prior to its release. Intense ruby red in colour the nose is rich and powerful, ethereal and very complex with notes of fruit and aromatic herbs, featuring citrus, cherry, wild berry, mint and oregano. The palate is structured, with firm integrated tannins and a perfect partner with grilled and roast meats, stewed red meats, game and mature hard cheeses. Sagrantino will generally reache full maturity after 10-15 years from the harvest; however it is able to bottle age for more than 30 years.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
