Sagrantino Montefalco DOCG "Fracanton"

2015
Italy
Umbria

100% Sagrantino. From biodynamically farmed, certified-organic, hand-harvested estate fruit. Fracanton comes from the oldest vines at Fongoli, planted in 1975 and trained in palmetta. The grapes are destemmed and so into open-topped clay amphorae for a spontaneous fermentation without sulfur or temperature control. Maceration is an extended period of about 3 months with gentle hand punchdowns. The wine is aged in old barrels of Slavonian oak for a minimum of 4 years. It is bottled without fining, filtering or additional sulfur and aged another year before release.
