Montefalco Rosso, Milziade Antano 2016 (Umbria, Italy)

From the most famous wine region in Umbria, Montefalco. Milziade Antano officially started bottling under his own name in the mid 70s, but had been working the vines for awhile before that. His son Franco took over in the 90s and still runs the show according to his father's old school garage winemaker ethos. Their Sagrantino is delicious, but they are maybe more known for their different levels of Montefalco Rosso. This is their entry level, which is a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Merlot from plots planted in the 60s, all farmed organically and hand harvested, then wild fermented and aged for 2 years in large old barrels before getting bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur added.
