II Falco translates from the Italian as "The Falcon", a play on Monefalco (Falco Mountain) where Sagrantino hails. It is one of the rarest grapes in the world with less than two thousand ares planted worldwide. Our Sagrantino-based blend is deeply structured with Volume, tannin, acidity and waves of flavor that build on the palate over the course of drinking a glass. Sagrantino responds well to our Appassimento drying technique, displaying concentrated flavors of dried cherries, currant savory characteristics reminiscent of pope tobacco. This earthy varietal is blended with Montepulciano and Petit Verdot to bring juicy fruit character to this complex and full-bodied wine. Sagrantino is and extraordinarily tannic red grape capable of making wines of immense power and structure easily aging for decades. This dry red is not for the faint of heart and demands the most chewy red meat (like deer, wild boar and steak) be eaten when this wine is enjoyed.
