MONTEFALCO ROSSO RAINA DOC 2010

MONTEFALCO, UMBRIA, ITALY

MERLOT
SAGRANTINO
SANGIOVESE

Located in Turri, near Montefalco, the best winemaking area of Umbria, this young estate has been completely rebuilt with state-of-the-art equipment to make authentic indigenous wines. Enologist Tiziano Vistali creates lively big bold flavours from the grapes growing in sandy soil rich in limestone and schist. The aroma is toasted, with sweet carmelised and balsamic tones. Merlot lends softness, Sagrantino contributes tannin, with Sangiovese giving the fresh ripe overtones. Lovely long finish from a classic wine.
