An Introduction to Sagrantino with Liu Pambuffetti of Scacciadiavoli di Pambuffetti in Umbria.
Apr 15 16
Under Italian law, the term "Montefalco Sagrantino Secco" defines a wine obtained exclusively from Sagrantino grapes, produced exclusively in the Province of Perugia, in the Umbria region of central Italy (although not necessarily in the comune of Montefalco). The word "secco" in the name is Italian for "dry". The wine is aged for 30 months, of which at least 12 months must be in oak barrels. The wine is a DOCG, the highest-ranking category of Italian wine denominations. The Montefalco Sagrantino secco has excellent storage characteristics. We will be exploring and tasting the various incarnations of Sagrantino from sparkling wine through blends, 100% Sagrantino and a sweet dessert wine, Passito.
