History Sagrantino is one of Italy’s oldest native varietals with characteristic polyphenolic complexity: a wild horse that must be discovered and tamed with the proper viticultural techniques in order to speak the harmonious and balanced language of all the Lungarotti wines. Legend has it that the name Sagrantino was given by Emperor Frederick II of Swabia; while travelling to Castel del Monte, he stopped to hunt with his falcon in the area around Montefalco. The bird, a specimen of of the prized and rare species called Saccr, fell sick and was cured with a medicine based on the local wine, which from that moment onwards, was called Sagrantino, after the name of the Emperor’s falcon. The DOC appellation was granted to Montefalco in 1979 also thanks to the contribution of Giorgio Lungarotti.
