This silky and substantial red wine is made from 100% Sagrantino, a highly esteemed grape indigenous to the Montefalco Area of Umbria. It is unanimously agreed among the locals that the variety finds its highest expression in the hills surrounding Gualdo Cattaneo, where the combination of microclimate, elevation and unique soils makes it possible to obtain wines of truly exceptional character. The wine name and label pay tribute to Riccardo’s father and first grandson.
Intense ruby-red in color, this wine displays intoxicating aromas of blackberry, black cherry, tobacco and graphite. On the palate, it offers a silky mouthfeel, firm fine-grained tanninis and perfect structural balance–vibrant and broad well into the finish.
Pairs brilliantly with the kinds of food for which Umbria is famous: roast beef, pasta with truffles and cream sauce, or artisanal sausages and roasted vegetables. Great wit our White Truffle Sacchettini, Beef Short Rib Ravioli, Lobster and Ziti or Salsiccia con Rosso e Verde Peperoni.
