Enjoyed a wonderful bottle of Il Falco by Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery to celebrate North Carolina wine month. This wine is a dry red made with the Sagrantino grape. Sagrantino is noted for flavors of dried plumbs, and dried cherries. This varietal is blended with Montepulciano and Petit Verdot to give this full-bodied wine a fruity character with a complex aroma.
Sagrantino is a varietal that is fairly unknown due to the limited acreage around the world. It is indigenous to the region of Umbria in Central Italy. Even though there has been a growth in the number of producers, there are still only around 2500 acres in the world.This entry was posted in Kentucky Wineries by admin
