DESCRIPTION:

Lungarotti, 100% sagrantino grape, fermented in stainless steel and left 28 days in contact with the skins (quite a long time compared to the average red wine process) then aged for 12 months in barrique. A beautiful deep ruby red wine. Intense on the nose, an abundance of complex red fruits (black cherry, bilberry) with elegant notes of cocoa and sweet spices, long lasting and harmonious scents. The palate is really deep and long lasting, powerful structure with good concentration and freshness of fruit, fragrant acidity and dense, mature, tannins. This wine has the potential to age for a very long time.
