Sagrantino grape has been cultivated in the Montefalco area, in Umbria, since the Middle Ages. The history of Sagrantino is linked to the importance of religious communities in Umbria and it seems that the name also refers to its sacred use during religious services, or to the term "sacristy" to indicate the premises for the clergy attached to Catholic churches. It is famous for its great intensity, concentration and aging capacity.
Sagrantino di Montefalco 'RC2' by Cotarella was produced for the first time with the 2006 vintage, when Riccardo Cotarella greeted the birth of his first grandson Riccardo Chiasso. The letters R and C inspired the original RC2 monogram. It is a wine that amazes for its thickness and elegance, as in the best tradition of Montefalco wines, whose aging in large barrels helps to enrich the wine, giving it spicy traces that open to a compact, intense taste, rich in tannins. Great balance and finesse.
