Antonelli San Marco Sagrantino Montefalco
2001
 
2001 was a great year for Sagrantino. This 2001 is less tannic than some other producers so is suited to early drinking and works for fans of a less heavy Sagrantino. Antonelli San Marco are the biggest producers in the area, their Sagrantino is well respected.

TCD OPINION
 
A thinner Montefalco than expected, 2001 is more feminine that the powerful and super tannic 2000's. A good introduction to the world of Sagrantino or for those who prefer a gentler attack.
A famous and respected Sagrantino producer in the DOCG Montefalco Sagrantino zone. Cheaper than Bea and Caprai this is a Sagrantino for people wishing to experience the grape at a cheaper price. Still a wonderful example and capable of ageing, simply without the A list famous name.

TCD Score: 87/100
87 Points for a Sagrantino from a unique vintage.

Antonelli San Marco
 
The estate has belonged to the Antonelli family since 1881. Although originally from Spoleto, the family has been based in Rome for five generations. Francesco Antonelli, a lawyer, bought and transformed the property. Stefano Antonelli, also a lawyer, and Marianna Antonelli maintained it with great care. Giacomo Antonelli, yet another lawyer, and Antonio Antonelli, an engineer, enlarged the property and invested in viticulture.

Filippo Antonelli has been at the helm of the estate since 1986. He divides his time between Montefalco and Rome where he manages another estate, Castello di Torre in Pietra. Born in Rome in 1960, he graduated from Perugia University with a degree in agriculture. He was president of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Montefalco from 1996 to 2006.

Manlio Erba is the consulting winemaker.

Massimiliano Caburazzi is the resident winemaker.

Ruggero Mazzili is the vineyard consultant.
