Bocale: Sagrantino, Trebbiano Spoletino and the great wines of Montefalco
Perugia, Italy
Wednesday, June 13th, 2018
The seventeenth season of DiWineTaste events ended with the narration of wines from one of the most significant wine areas of Umbria and, undoubtedly, of Italy: Montefalco. Representing this interesting territory - homeland of the majestic Sagrantino - Bocale winery of Montefalco, recently involved also in the production of wines made from Trebbiano Spoletino. To the event took part Valentino and Antonello Valentini - owners of Bocale winery - whom have accounted both the productive philosophy and vision of the winery, as well as the characteristics of the varieties used for the making of their wines, in particular Trebbiano Spoletino and Sagrantino. The event started with Trebbiano Spoletino 2017 - the only white wine and last born in Bocale winery - confirming the huge potentials and the refined elegance of the white grape from Spoleto, well fused to the structure typical in wines produced with this variety. Wine of remarkable personality, Bocale's Trebbiano Spoletino is produced in steel tanks, therefore allowing the full appreciation from the glass of the typical and exuberant expression of this valuable white grape. The event continued with the first of the four red wines of the evening, beginning from Montefalco Rosso 2014. Mainly produced with Sangiovese and small quantities of Sagrantino, Merlot and Colorino, this wine is released after one year of aging in cask and one year in bottle, expressing clean and intense aromas recalling the varieties used for its production, as well as a pleasing balance making this wine very agreeable and allowing a great versatility at the table. It is then the turn of the three Montefalco Sagrantino wine of the evening, of which two vinified as dry and one as sweet, all being of remarkable personality and character. The event also offered the chance to have a preview tasting of Montefalco Sagrantino 2014, in which can be clearly recognized the expression of the great Umbrian red, despite the effects of the vintage, clearly a not easy one for this territory because of the meteorological conditions of that year. More intense and powerful, absolutely elegant and of great agreeableness, Montefalco Sagrantino 2013, in which the influence of the year allows a better expression and structure, as well as a pleasing roundness joined to the typical power of Sagrantino's tannins. The event, and therefore 2017/2018 season of DiWineTaste events, ended with Montefalco Sagrantino Passito 2009, a sweet wine of unique personality, in which the typical astringency of this variety is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of dried grapes and that, thanks to its power and structure, allows complex and interesting food pairing, including hard cheese and chocolate. The sensorial tasting of wines, as well as the dishes paired to Bocale wines, has been curated by Antonello Biancalana, DiWineTaste chief editor.
