2020 Scacciadiavoli Montefalco Rosso Umbria
Winemaker Notes: According to the ancient winemaking tradition of the Montefalco zone, after selecting the grapes for the production of the massive Scacciadiavoli Montefalco Sagrantino, additional fruit is harvested for the production of a fresh, friendly wine, ideally drunk with all the rich and tasty dishes for which Umbria is known. Added to this are grapes of varied origin from other regions, which make for a more complex and interesting wine. Aside from the native Sagrantino (15%), there is Sangiovese (60%), Merlot (15%), and other red grapes. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged for one year in large Salvonian oak foudres. The result is a fresh and fruity red with cherry aromas and flavors and a rather rich and long finish. Known to chase away the devil, too...as if the taste was not enough to woo you!
