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

Despite being one of Italy's smallest wine regions, the central Italian region of Umbria is a vitally important one, and home to many of the country's finest and most historic wines and wineries. The reputation of Umbrian wines may have suffered in the 1970s, along with the produce of much of the rest of the country, but the 1980s and 1990s saw significant efforts made by vintners when it came to improving their produce and overall image. By consulting international oenologists, the wineries of Umbria were able to update their traditional techniques, and produce considerably finer wines from their Sangiovese grapes, as well as from imported varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. Indeed, the barrel fermented white wines of Umbria, now made with a blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto varietal grapes, has gone on to be something of a flagship product for the region, and is regarded as one of the best and most characterful white wines in Italy.

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.
