MONTEFALCO ROSSO D.O.C.
A combination of the power of Sagrantino and the elegance of Sangiovese, the Montefalco Rosso from Tenuta Castelbuono expresses all the charm of a region with an age-old winemaking tradition.
A brilliant ruby red in colour.
It immediately strikes one with the elegance and complexity of its broad aromas of cherries and cloves, which give way to balm-like tones.
The same elegance is to be found on the palate: a wine of splendid balance, which is mouth-filling and remarkably powerful, yet very fresh. It is already extremely enjoyable, but will also undoubtedly benefit from a little ageing.
70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, 15% Cabernet and Merlot, harvested by hand in September and October.
Family-owned vineyards at Montefalco and Bevagna.
