Umbria seen through the eyes of Eric Guido for Vinous
By visiting the territories of our beloved Umbria, Eric confirmed his passion for our territories, ideal for the cultivation and subsequent production of absolutely special native wines. In fact, according to the author of Vinous, the vineyards surrounding Montefalco possess all the characteristics to create exceptional wine qualities, thanks also to other characteristics such as the climate, the position and the composition of the soil.

Here are Vinous' excellent ratings for these Montioni wines during this year's visit!
SAGRANTINO DI MONTEFALCO MA.GIA 2018: 94 points by Eric Guido - Vinous
"Dusty yet floral, and fully of characer, the 2018 Montefalco Sagrantino Ma.Gia slowly comes to life. Spiced orange rinds, dried cherries and mint can all be found in the glass. It impressess further with the silkiest of textures coasting along a medium-bodied frame and depths of fleshy red berry fruits that resolve to reveal a coating of minerality. It finished long with subtle tannins and a resonance of licorice, yet not the srtuctural oomph readers would expect from Sagrantino. this is pure elegance and a great achievemetyn for the vintage
SAGRANTINO DI MONTEFALCO MONTIONI 2018: 93 points by Eric Guido - Vinous
"The 2018 Montefalco Sagrantino is moody and dark at first yet coaxing reveals a seductive mix of cherry and plum sauce, autumnal spice and tobacco. It's soothlingly pliant and elegenat in feel, with opulent red and blue fruits that slowly stain the palate with fine tannins. While lightly structured the tannins are sweet and round allowing sweet herbal tones and pretty violet florals to linger on and on."
MONTEFALCO ROSSO MONTIONI 2019: 90 points by Eric Guido - Vinous
"Depths of black cherry are lifted by dusty rose and mentholated herbs as the 2019 Montefalco Rosso unfolds in the glass. It coasts along the palate, riding a brilliant core of bright acidity while delivering a balanced mix of ripe red fruits. The 2019s momentum never stops as it finishes only lightly tannic but long, revealing a pretty inner sweetness. "
Thanks to Eric for coming back to taste our typical Montefalco wines and for appreciating them as only a true expert can.
