REGION: Montefalco, Umbria
GOOD TO KNOW: In 1927, Decio Fongoli Calvani purchased the San Marco estate in Montefalco and began making wine in 1940. Five acres of Sagrantino grape were planted in 1975, and between 1990 and 2008, the estate added another 15 acres of Sagrantino grape. Today the Fongoli estate is a quintessential Umbrian property with 65 acres of vineyards and 20 acres of olive trees, all farmed organically.
TASTE: garnet dark, dense, almost impenetrable, of great consistency. The olfactory impact is intense and elegant, and built on large fruity, ethereal, spicy. On the palate it achieves a remarkable structure, offering a fair tannins, this wine is full-bodied, dense, chewy, unique.
