Broccatelli Galli. Montefalco Sagrantino
Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG
Deep strawberry and kirsch on the nose. The palate is a little more forthcoming with clove, espresso and open vibrant fruit showing through the wall of tannin. It is a big wine that promises much and eminently more enjoyable at this stage than previous vintages of this wine.
Broccatelli e Galli is a family business that makes unpretentious, honest wine. They are big (huge by our standards), with 50ha in Torgiano and 28 in Montefalco and a central winery in Bastia Umbra -which may not be ‰Û÷bello' but is very practical. For ‰Û÷bello', it is worth travelling a few km south to an old farmhouse the family has renovated and transformed into holiday apartments with gorgeous views across the valley to Assisi.
The arrival of enologist Emiliano Falsini in 2010 coincided with a sharper cut through the entire range. Until his arrival, we only shipped Sagrantino on rare occasions as we usually find uncut Sagrantino liable to cause a tannic overdose.
