2 day lead-time required to confirm availability
Gold is the result of years of experience and effords in the vineyards at Montefalco where, thanks to a particular terroir, the Sagrantino wine obtains very original and unique organolectic characteristics. Gold is the masterpiece of historical vineyards of Santa Maria del Fico and San Marco; exposure and microclimate do the rest, giving the possibility to obtain a structured wine, with an intense colour, red fruits and spices aroma. The flavour is rich, with full body and great elegance, clear expression of the terroir.
|Colpetrone is one of the most important wine producers in the Montefalco D.O.C.G. area. Sagrantino, the native vine of these area, is one of the most ancient varieties in Italy and the richest in tannin and polyphenolic contents. For that reason, a very particular approach to vinification is required, one that shows off the unique power of the variety without putting at risk balance and elegance. High quality breeding systems are used in the vineyards, permitting yields of 6 tons per hectare, well below those 8 tons prescribed under the rules of production. Sagrantino is produced in three different versions: Montefalco Sagrantino, Passito, a sweet red wine with an old tradition, and the selection ”Gold” that is the result of the most recent developments of this wine. Colpetrone also produces: Montefalco Rosso D.O.C. and Grappa di Montefalco Sagrantino.
