More info

The Lungarotti winery makes its Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG wine exclusively from Sagrantino grapes grown in the terroir of Montefalco (PG).

The grapes harvested in mid-October are fermented in steel with maceration on the skins for twenty-eight days and matured in barriques for 12 months. Finally, after a light filtration, the Lungarotti wine matures for three years in the bottle before release. It is through this careful vinification process that the prized grapes are transformed into Lungaritti's Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG wine: a deep purple-red colour, a bouquet reminiscent of red fruits, morello cherries, currants and raspberries and delicate notes of sweet tobacco, cocoa and a finish of medicinal herbs.

With its dense structure and great depth, the Lungarotti wine satisfies with a very pleasant, fresh flavour, with rich, harmonious tannins and a lingering aftertaste of jam. With its organoleptic qualities, Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG is particularly exalted with roast red meat, suckling pig, game and game alla ghiotta, venison stew, spicy cheeses and palombacci all'umbra.

Sagrantino legend has it that Frederick II of Swabia, on his way to Castel del Monte, stopped to hunt with his falcon in the area of Moltefalco. When his bird fell ill, he was cured with a local wine-based medicine that later took the name Sagrantino, inherited from the name of the emperor's falcon.
