Moretti family present a new wine: Montefalco Rosso Riserva DOC Facciatosta.
If you are a “facciatosta” you will like it: infact it is a bold wine for bold people! Character and seduction! Sangiovese brings enveloping notes in the palate, Sagrantino gives the dense and powerful backbone. This wine can be named Riserva after 30 months of aging, and we choose to put it for 14 months in oak barrels.While sipping it, listen to: “Bad Guy” di Billie Eilish.
Vibrant ruby red. The nose is very dense and tightly-wound with backward aromas. Lovely attack on the palate with prunes and then a great silky tannin backbone. The mouth goes between creamy and powdery, great passage on wild berries.
