2014-C Roccafiore Montefalco Rosso, Umbria, Italy

This charming Montefalco Rosso is a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. It was fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for 12 months in mostly neutral Slovenian barrels and French oak barriques, followed by another four months in bottle before release. Aromas on the nose are strong and present with floral, spicy, slightly earthy, as well as red plum and raspberry scents. The medium-bodied palate is juicy and bright with flavors of ripe cherry and plum. The wine ends with medium-high acidity, making for a crisp finish that also has a refreshing saline quality which excites the palate for more. Thanks to the significant portion of Sangiovese vs the more tannic varietals of Sagrantino and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine shows an easy and immediate drinkability that adds to its overall likeability. It really shines when enjoyed with the delicious ‘Tomme de Fontenay’ herb-encrusted goat cheese with which we've paired it for our cheese flight!
