Joe’s Pick: Colpetrone Montefalco Sagrantino 2010


Body: Full
Fruit: Red fruit, ie. raisinated cherries
Food Pairings: Prosciutto and salumi or shoulder cut pork roasts
Organic: no


Colpetrone’s Montefalco Sagrantino is a food lover’s red in that it’s patiently prepared and has complicated depth of flavor. It’s produced from a tannic, age-worthy Umbrian variety that is generously dark-fruited on the nose, with ample texture and subtle, complicated minerality on the palate. It’s a dense, winter red that hints at savoriness and shows unfailingly well with rustic food. Umbria is at the same latitude as Kentucky and Virginia, but with a longer history of producing ham and cured meats. Sagrantino makes the perfect, adventurous pairing for slow-roasts, hearty dishes and what we love to eat this time of year.
