Wine Dinner

Sagrantino and Steak Dinner featuring Scacciadiavoli

Thursday, May 3, 2018  |  6:30PM
$225 Includes hospitality fee and wine pairing
Limited to 16 guests

The Sagrantino vine variety is only grown in the areas of Montefalco, Bevagna, Gualto Cattaneo, Castel Ritaldi and Giano dell’Umbria, all located in the province of Perugia.The question of how ancient the cultivation of Sagrantino in Montefalco is has always been up for debate. There are, nevertheless, numerous historical references to the matter. The etymology of the name can be traced back to the Sacraments (from latin, “Sacer”- Sacred), as the grapes were cultivated by priests that obtained a passito destined for religious rites, or because it was the wine that farmers brought to the table for religious festivities or celebrations that punctuated the year, such as Easter or Christmas. The Sagrantino grape yields wines of great structure, elegance, complexity and character, and with excellent ageing potential.

This dinner will be featuring wines from Scacciadiavoli. Founded in 1884, the Scacciadiavoli winery takes its name from an exorcist that lived in a town at the borders of the property who used the wine for his rituals. It was conceived by Prince Ugo Boncompagni Ludovisi as a wine “industry”: an imposing oenological complex, highly advanced for its age. In 1954 Amilcare Pambuffetti, at 71, bought the Scacciadiavoli holding, where at the age of 14 he had worked as a farm hand. The winery lies on a hill, with a vertical building on four levels of which one is below ground, and all the production takes place by gravity-flow.

Featured Scacciadiavoli wines include:
Montefalco 2014
Grechetto 2016
Montefalco Sagrantino 2010
Montefalco Sagrantino 2011
Sagrantino Passito 2012
