Tenuta BellaFonte Collenotollo Montefalco Sagrantino Italian Red Wine 750ML
100% Sagrantino from vineyards in Bevagna. The vines are 12-15 years old and grow at 853-1,050 feet above sea level. The grapes are not crushed, but simply de-stemmed to make vinification as gentle as possible, then transferred to the stainless steel vats, where they begin fermentation with only naturally occurring yeast. Skin maceration lasts about two weeks. After a few weeks of rest and some
decanting, the wine is transferred to the aging cellars and placed in large Slavonian oak barrels of no less than 30 hectoliters where the wine is aged for 36 months. The wine is subsequently bottled, unfiltered, and undergoes another 10 months’ bottle age previous to release. Bright ruby red color with notes of blackberries and
wild berries alternate with spicy and mineral sensations, which gradually become more and more sophisticated and complex. The mouth has a great texture and energy.
