The Best of Montefalco in Umbria in 2023

The Montefalco wine region of Italy’s Umbria province grows the excellent Sagrantino grape, and the best wines we tasted in 2023 are well worth waiting for this grape’s famous tannins to evolve.  If you are impatient or simply want a delicious red wine to drink now, we highly recommend the Sangiovese-Sagrantino blend called Montefalco Rosso.  And if your tastes run to white wines, this regions produces excellent Trebbiano Spoletino and Grechetto wines. We list our top recommendations for producers of each of these wine types at the bottom of this article.

Here are some specific wine recommendations, but we strongly recommend you consult Report 94 The Montefalco Wines of Umbria for a much longer list of excellent wines to consider purchasing.

Antonelli Chiusa di Pannone Sagrantino Montefalco:  A classic producer of Sagrantino; all of his Sagrantino bottlings are excellent.

Arnaldo Caprai Collepiano Sagrantino Montefalco:  Another excellent Sagrantino from one of Umbria’s very top producers.

Tenute Lunelli Tenuta Castelbuono Ziggaraut Montefalco Rosso: This is a project of the Lunelli family, famous for its Ferrari sparkling wine.  An excellent, fresh red wine that’s ready to drink now.

Scacciadiavoli Trebbiano Spoletino Spoleto:  Trebbiano Spoletino has become the “go to” white variety of Umbria; it bears little resemblance to more common Trebbiano varieties. Giampaolo Tabarrini’s Trebbiano Spoletino Adarmando is also outstanding.
