NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 a beautiful ruby red with purple hues;👃🏻 on the nose it expresses an intense and very complex bouquet of fruit and flowers, above all: myrtle, morello cherry and blackberries;
👄 on the palate it is characterized by a great balance between softness and freshness, with a unique and delicate sweetness.
This Sagrantino passito is a sweet wine that can be perfectly paired according to the principle of concordance, therefore it is perfect with dry pastries, chocolate cakes, but also blue cheeses. An excellent meditation wine, alone.
A Sagrantino passito cultivated in the Bevagna vineyards, with North-West exposure at 230 meters above sea level on clay-limestone soil, and in Colcimino with West exposure at 360 meters above sea level on clayey-sandy calcareous soil. The wine comes from a careful selection of the grapes, harvested manually in the first half of October.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
The harvested grapes are then left to dry naturally in the air for about two months before vinification. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of around 25° C. Maceration for 12-14 days with daily pumping over until the natural stop of fermentation. Aging in oak barrels for 24 months.

TERROIRThe company, strictly family-run, is located on the hills of Montefalco, in the green heart of the green heart of Italy, forty kilometers south of Perugia, in central Italy. A beautiful location, three hundred meters above sea level, on the hillside that kisses the horizon of Trevi and Spoleto. Here the indigenous Umbrian variety par excellence is grown: the Sagrantino.
The production area is included in an altitude range between 220 m and 470 m and shows essentially Mediterranean characteristics, with hot but not sultry summers and fairly cold and fairly rainy winters. The average summer temperatures are 18-23° C while the winter temperatures are 4-6° C. All these elements ensure that the area has a sub-continental temperate climate. The slope of the vineyard plots and the general exposure is variable, so much so as to create a wide range of microclimates and cultivation conditions. The soils are of clear clayey-limestone matrix, sometimes deeper and sometimes lighter.
We are in Bevagna, in the province of Perugia. An old convent of the Congregation of the Celestines marks the historical origin of Cantina Adanti. Located in the Municipality of Bevagna, in the area historically suited to the production of traditional Umbrian wines, the Adanti Winery was born thanks to the insight of Domenico Adanti. Domenico bought a villa in the Arquata di Bevagna hamlet in the sixties and with it the remains of the old convent. In the following years Domenico had the property renovated and in fact created the modern Adanti Winery, with the declared aim of producing quality wines. Good intentions, in wine as in life, do not always have a happy following, or at least not immediately.
The first vinifications, in fact, are not perfect but on his path Domenico meets Alvaro Palini, first a tailor and then a stylist in Paris and a great lover of Umbrian wines. The chronicles tell of close comparisons between Alvaro and Domenico, until the latter invites his friend to personally take care of the winemaking. It was a turning point not only for Cantina Adanti but also for the whole Sagrantino area. The contribution of Alvaro Palini, in fact, was decisive for the fate of Umbrian wines: today the sisters Daniela and Donatella Adanti, having taken the baton from their father Piero, continue to produce wine in the wake - it should be said - traced by their grandfather Domenico , in the name of ampelographic prerogatives and family tradition.
