Sagrantino di Montefalco is a DOCG appellation in Umbria based on the grape of the same name which produces highly tannic wines that require a long time to reveal their great promise. We sometimes think that these wines are the Italian equivalent of the Madiran wines of France which are based on the similarly tannic Tannat grape variety.
Arnaldo Caprai is the producer who is credited with reviving this obscure grape but others such as Roberta Vitali from Rocca di Fabbri Winery and those made by Filippo Antonelli also deserve attention.
Keep an eye on this DOCG because it will receive a lot of attention once it is discovered in the United States because it is big, bold and forward.
