Tabarrini Sagrantino Campo alla Cerqua 2010
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.
REGION: Umbria (Montefalco)
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Sagrantino.
VINIFICATION: Soaking on the skins for over a month.
CHARACTERISTICS: Stony soil, looser and lighter than the other vineyards, an easterly exposure, and ageing in large barrels make this Sagrantino the bastion of elegance in Cantina Tabarrini. Cool, relaxed, distinctly mineral, it combines the individual identity of the grape with a joyous but very aromatic complexity. Marketed no less than four years after harvest.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 15% vol
