Anecdotes

Sagrantino is a native varietal as well as one of the most ancient grapes in Umbria that features great polyphenolic complexity. For this reason, it was traditionally produced in its Passito version. On the label is a view of the Montefalco winery and in the foreground, a falcon, symbol of the area, where traditionally falcon hunting, the great passion of Emperor Frederick II of Swabia, was practiced.
