I very much enjoyed this entry-level blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% other complementary grapes. The 2018 Montefalco Rosso (with 28,000 bottles released) strikes good balance with a very dark and plump fruit component that is contrasted by freshness, cola and drying mineral sensations. This vintage had its challenges for sure with a rainy spring and hot summer, but the team at Perticaia has managed to navigate these issues. I'd imagine a pairing with meatloaf or grilled pork chops.
