Description

Though there are more famous and media-savvy Sagrantino estates, many experts, such as Ian D’Agata of the International Wine Cellar and Decanter, believe Adanti to be, if not the best, then one of the top three producers of this unique wine.

The Adanti farm is one of the historic cellars of the Montefalco area in Umbria; one of the first to produce Sagrantino wine. The area is also well-known for the lighter-styled wine called Montefalco Rosso, which is not a pure Sagrantino wine, but rather a blend with Sangiovese and Montepulciano.

Now owned by Pietro, Donatella and Daniela Adanti, the estate today covers roughly fifty hectares of land located in the hilly areas of Arquata and Colcimino. This area has been famous since ancient times for the particularly high quality olive oil and wine. Indeed some of Adanti's land is still planted to olive groves. The winery produces mainly red wines from local, indigenous grapes, such as the Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG in both dry and Passito versions: Montefalco Rosso DOC and the Red Arquata Umbria IGT. However, it also continues to produce the characteristic white wines of the area such as Grechetto and Montefalco Bianco. Though Sangiovese and Sagrantino are the main grape varieties grown and used at Adanti, they also dedicate some vineyards Cabernet, Barbera, Merlot and Grechetto.

Grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, fermentation is made in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature at 28° C. Maceration of 3-4 weeks with pumping over and delestage. Ageing: barrels of 30 Hl and tonneaux for 28 months. In bottle for at least 12 months.

Intense ruby red colour. Powerful aromas on the nose, clean, pleasant, elegant, opening with reminescence of blackberry, blackcherry and violet followed by plum, blueberry, vanilla, pink pepper, tobacco, chocolate, cinnamon and mint. The aromas are confirmed on the palate: tannic but balanced by the alcohol, full body, intense flavours, very pleasant.
