From: Umbria, Italy
Tasting Notes: Wild yeast fermentation, minimal sulphur added, with no fining or filtering. Displaying a classic Sangiovese profile (somewhere between mulberries, prunes, spice, tobacco, sometimes leather, and chestnuts), without any flashy gimmicks.
Pairing: A well-made and enjoyable wine to accompany a plate of norcinera air-dried sausages (an Umbrian specialty) or a hearty lentil salad.
"Overlooking Lake Trasimeno, on the northern cusp of Umbria, lies the Cantarelli family farm of Montemelino. In 1961 Margret Etten Cantarelli made her first vintage of wine, inspired by her passion for the land and a drive to create a fully-functioning, independent farm and winery. Living in Umbria as a German ex-pat for much of her adult life, she'd found her heart in Umbria and a desire to be connected to its land...thus was borne, Montemelino.
