About

92

"A streak of tarry mineral underscores this fresh, full-bodied red, well-meshed with grippy tannins and flavors of blackberry, black currant, dried marjoram, mandarin orange peel and graphite. Dense and chewy, so give this cellar time or air to show its stuff. Best from 2021 through 2031. 165 cases made, 100 cases imported. — AN"

"One of three single-vineyard wines, the 2013 Montefalco Sagrantino Campo Alla Cerqua sees fruit sourced from a plot with rocky soils and southeastern exposures. The bouquet is more developed and focused as a result, with clear mineral imprinting behind plump red fruit and exotic spice. This wine is also aged in large oak casks like the others, but it offers a very precise and clean collection of fruit aromas."

Product Description:

"The soil of the Cerqua vineyard is stony, looser and lighter than Grimaldesco or Macchie and it enjoys easterly exposure. The wine is aged in large barrels making this Sagrantino more elegant than perhaps any other from the region of Montefalco. It is a relaxing wine, oozing with minerality, highlighting the individual identity of the vineyard and resulting in a joyous and very aromatic complexity. Marketed no less than four years after harvest." - Winery
