Bellafonte Montefalco Sagrantino “Collenottolo” DOCG
100% Sagrantino. Bright ruby red color with notes of blackberries and wild berries. Spicy and mineral sensations, which gradually become more and more sophisticated and complex. The mouth has a great texture and energy.
We wish to create a great wine, which respects both nature and tradition, by interpreting the natural exuberance of Sagrantino grapes in an elegant and refined way.
