Professional Wine Reviews for Colpetrone Sagrantino Di Montefalco Gold Italian Red Blend 2006

Rated 93 by Decanter
This is layered and powerful, with lots of dried fruits, toasted oak and tannins. Gorgeous fruit, but still needs bottle time to resolve muscular tannins. Better in 2016. (Suckling)
Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2006 Sagrantino di Montefalco Gold is a selection taken from two of the estate's most important vineyards that spends 12 months in French oak barrels. It is another big wine imbued with dark red fruit, smoke, licorice and spices. Juniper berries and leather follow, adding greater nuance and depth. This is an especially dark, sumptuous Sagrantino with tons of depth and harmony. Both bottles I tasted were superb.

Winery Colpetrone

Region: Umbria

Umbria in central Italy is one of the country's smallest wine regions, and is often overlooked due to its proximity to Tuscany. However, Umbria specialises in using its stunning Tuscany-esque terroir – all rolling hillsides and lush, green vineyards – to their full potential, and producing stunning wines of character and distinction for extremely reasonable prices. In particular, Umbria is renowned as something of a home of innovative Italian wine making, taking native varietals such as Sangiovese and Grechetto, and blending them with Bordeaux red and white wine grapes in order to produce spectacular aged, blended wines. By taking traditional viticultural practices, and shaking them up a bit, Umbria is quickly discarding its former poor reputation, and proving that it is a wine region to watch and explore.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
