Description

60% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, 25% Merlot Scacciadiavoli is one of the oldest properties in Montefalco. The name, Scacciadiavoli (from “scacciare” – to banish, and “diavoli” – devils), refers to an episode of exorcism in the 14th century . The story tells of a young woman possessed by the devil who was made to drink some local red wine by an exorcist, banishing the demon. Scacciadiavoli’s Montefalco Rosso boasts an intense ruby red color, an expansive, elegant bouquet with scents of cherry, and a soft and voluptuous flavor. According to the ancient wine making tradition of the Montefalco area, after selecting the grapes for the production of the Montefalco Sagrantino, all the other varietals of red grapes were harvested for the production of a fresher wine, to accompany all type of dishes. Perfect with soups, pastas, rich dishes, poultry, red meats and cheese.
