Cantine Adanti is one of the historic cellars in the Montefalco area of Umbria, Italy. In the 1960s, it was purchased by Domenico Adanti, who renovated the old Celestine convent on the property, which itself was built on ruins from the Roman Empire. In the 1970s, the Adanti family - along with other local winegrowers - began experimenting with the native Sagrantino grape to bring out flavors that were more dry and less sweet. In 1992, Sagrantino received DOCG certification. The Adanti winery produces primarily red wines from indigenous grapes. Its Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG is 100% Sagrantino, produced exclusively from estate vineyards in Arquata and Montefalco. When mature, the wine has an intense fruit and spice bouquet, with notes of blackberry and plum, and robust tannins. Pairs wonderfully with red meat and game.
