The wine

Tenuta Bellafonte represents, without a shadow of a doubt, the new way for the Sagrantino di Montefalco. The beautiful project of Peter Heilbron, a wise, convivial and pragmatic man, has its centre in Bevagna, a municipality located in the northern part of the Umbrian denomination. Where nature offers a fresh climate, excellent exposures and a vineyard to be rediscovered compared to the historical Montefalco plots.

The principle that governs the Bellafonte project is clear: to produce a Sagrantino as subtle and elegant as possible, harmonious and complex, enhancing its longevity without giving up its distinctive features, that is, strength and tannins. In short, a Sagrantino which is modern, pop, with excellent drinkability. Judging by the results and the awards, Peter hit it out of the ballpark.

The cellar is a gem of modernity and technology. Moreover, in Bellafonte you can breathe the perfect combination of eco-sustainability, and therefore tradition, and technological innovation. In addition, the project makes use of the oenological collaboration of personalities of the calibre of Beppe Caviola and Luca Franchetti. Located, like the vineyards, at about 300 metres above sea level, the cellar, which is heated and controlled in a completely natural way, is populated by large Slavonian oak barrels where the wines rest without undergoing filtration.

The star of the Bellafonte project is the Sagrantino Collenottolo. From spontaneous fermentation, this great Umbrian red stays three years in large barrels and at least one year in the bottle before being marketed. This successful example of a Sagrantino conceived "by subtraction rather than addition", therefore oriented towards elegance rather than tannic structure, it expresses a beautiful intense and intriguing ruby ​​colour. The bouquet reveals refined aromas of iris and lavender, blueberry and raspberry jam, sweet spices and aromatic herbs. Great balance on the palate: despite the remarkable and characteristic tannic structure, the palate is satisfied with the fruit and delicate toasted notes.
