  4. RC2 Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG

This silky and substantial red wine is made from 100% Sagrantino, a highly-esteemed grape indigenous to the Montefalco area of Umbria. Locals unanimously agree that the variety is at its finest in the hills surrounding Gualdo Cattaneo.  Here, 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 Cotarella's first grandson, Riccardo Chiasso, who shares the initials, RC, with his grandfather.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby-red in color, intoxicating aromas of black fruit and blackberry complement undertones of black cherry, tobacco, and graphite. On the palate, fine-grained tannins and well-integrated alcohol result in a silky mouthfeel and perfect structural balance.

Food Pairing

Pair with roasted pork, Hollandaise sauces, pasta with truffles and cream sauce, or artisanal sausages.
