About the wine

This is a big, brooding, complex, and down right delicious red wine. Made from 100% Sagrantino grapes, one of the world's most full-bodied grapes, it takes the very best growing conditions and a true expert winemaker to craft this into something special. The 2008 Sangrantino di Montefalco Riserva 'Il Domenico' from Adanti is and intense ruby red with hues of garnet. It boasts a powerful and broad powerful aromatic range, from stewing blackcurrants, to freshly picked blackberries, from smoky tobacco leaf, to drying coffee beans, and from hot graphite to forest undergrowth. An explosion of flavour on the palate, made perfectly balanced by the elegant acidic profile of the wine. It's big, yes, but lifted and charming at the same time, never chewy or overblown, with a balanced, velvety finish.

Adanti is a small, family run winery, based in the heart of the renowned Montefalco growing area in Umbria, south of Rome. Here is the only place in the world that they manage to tame the notorious Sagrantino grape and weave it into something beautiful. Sisters Daniele and Dontella Adanti lead the winery, and under their watchful eye, Adanti has grown to be considered one of the finest producers of Montefalco wines in existence. The grapes for the Sagrantino Riserva Il Domenico are a top selection of grapes grown exclusively in a vineyard on the hills of Colcimino, the oldest vineyard in the region of Bevagna, situated at 350 m above sea level. After fermentation, the wine spends at least 30 months in large oak casks and it has been in bottle for the best part of 10 years, developing, softening, and evolvling into the wonder it is today.

The slow cookers soul mate, this would pair brilliantly with a slow cooked beef stew on a cold winter's evening....yes please!
