Col Santo, Fattoria
Part of the Livon family of prestige wineries. Fattoria Col Santo is located in the municipal administration of Bevagna (Umbria), in the D.O.C.G. of Montefalco.
The property has an extension of 20 hectares and includes a farm house that dates back to the 1700's and allows a view over Assisi and Spello, due to its marvellous location. The wine cellar has been completely restored and the new vineyards, with a density of 7,500 stocks per hectare, are already producing high quality grapes.
2010 Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG (Magnum)
The grapes are harvested at the beginning of October by hand, using boxes followed by gentle destemming. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 23°C on the skins for fifteen days; then the malolactic fermentation takes place (70% inside wooden casks and 30% in steel tanks) followed by 15 months of maturing in wooden casks. After this period the wine is put in steel tanks for a further 12 months’ maturing. At the end of this period, the wine is assembled and bottled, followed by a further period of refining in the bottle.
The wine has a deep, intense garnet red color. Its bouquet ranges from tobacco to red berries to spices. It is complex on the palate and has a lot of powerful, but soft, tannins.
This is a wine that will reward cellaring and could be enjoyed in another 20 years.
