Tenute Lunelli Carapace Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG

2012

In a Nutshell

Rich, deep and tannic red from Umbria.

Tasting Notes

A typical expression of a grape variety that is absolutely unique in terms of power and longevity, the Sagrantino from Tenuta Castelbuono amazes one with its mellowness, which results from skilful vineyard husbandry and long ageing in large oak casks.
A deep, luminous ruby red in colour; concentrated and refined.
The nose is a triumph of blackberry jam and blueberries – typical of the variety – with attractive and intense notes of cherries in brandy, carob and rose petals. Its traditionally-styled profile is further enhanced by liquorice and chocolate notes.
It has a distinct creaminess on the palate, along with very powerful, mellow fruit. The finish is long and persistent, with precisely defined tannins of rare finesse, elegance and gentleness.
