Tabarrini Montefalco Rosso 2011

R 264.00

For four generations, the Tabarrini family has been nestled in the corner of Umbria outside of Montefalco. They have passionately tended their vineyards, yielding exceptional fruit for producing distinctive wines.

In the late 1990’s, Giampaolo Tabarrini put years of experience to use and decided to bottle his own wine. Giampaolo now makes some of the most highly respected wines from Central Italy. He produces the top 3 wines in the region and is called “The Rising Star of Umbria.” Tabarrini is continually well rated for his single-vineyard Sagrantino’s by Gambero Rosso, The Wine Advocate, and most recently, Wine Spectator.

COUNTRY: Italy

REGION: Umbria (Montefalco)

GRAPE VARIETY: Mostly Sangiovese, with the addition of Barbera and Sagrantino.

VINIFICATION: Soaking on the skins for over a month.

CHARACTERISTICS: This is not Sagrantino’s younger brother; it is a wine in its own right, with great dignity and much potential. The fusion of traditional grapes, Sangiovese and Sagrantino, along with the precious input of Barbera, ensure this wine has the makings of a future Montefalco classic.

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14,5% vol
