Montefalco is a vertiginous hill town in Umbria famous for Sagrantino di Montefalco, a full-bodied red made from the sagrantino grape. The 2004 Ugolino from Terre de' Trinci is stupendous, a deep-flavored, fleshy sagrantino lush with the tastes of blackberry and earth. Its tannins are big, but softened, and it has a finish that just doesn't let go. It's a big, gentle bear of a wine.
