There are few doubts that this is the most surprising operation set up in the last few years in the Montefalco Area, thanks to its owner, Peter Heilbron, who has managed to turn his visionary dream into a reality on solid fundations.
This excellent wine country, in a marvellous natural setting near Torre del Colle, gives grapes of great class. The beautiful cellar, embodying both traditional and contemporary values, is crammed with large barrels.
Here spontaneous fermentation, vinification with minimal intervention and long ageing bring outstanding results, to the benefit of the entire DOC zone, offering naturally expressive, elegant wines with real indviduality.
The quite simply stunning Montefalco Sagrantino Colenottolo 2010 is in a class of its own, with magnificent elegance and detail, a silky, seductive texture.
It is never owerpowering but shows a graceful nose of raspberries, red berry fruit, elegant spice, leather and undergrowth.
In the mout, textbook tannic extraction underpins extraordinary lenght.
