Professional Wine Reviews for Colpetrone Sagrantino Di Montefalco Gold 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.

Additional Information on Colpetrone Sagrantino Di Montefalco Gold 2006

Winery: Colpetrone

Region: Umbria

The beautiful central Italian region of Umbria may well be a fraction of the size of neighboring Tuscany, but still manages to impress and surprise the international wine community with their outstanding produce and the volume they make it in, with the region turning out over twenty five million gallons of wine per year. However, Umbrian wine makers have been exceptionally keen to emphasize the fact that they are primarily concerned with creating quality, characterful and unique Italian wines, often made from blends of native varietals, with imported Bordeaux grapes. In particular, the aged white wines of Umbria, made from Chardonnay and Grechetto grapes, have proven to be a huge success internationally, demonstrating how this particular region is ready to blend traditional practices with innovation and the pursuit of perfection when it comes to making wines.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
