Gold Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG
Umbria

Sagrantino is a native varietal of Umbria, which, according to some, was brought to the region by Franciscan monks centuries ago. In the last 30 years, Sagrantino has enjoyed a resurgence in Umbria.

Gold is an elevated expression of Sagrantino made from the estate’s two historic vineyards, Santa Maria del Fico and San Marco. This wine is only made in the best vintages.
