VINES AND harvest

Inside the beautiful estate of 15 hectares a vineyard of mostly: Sagrantino was planted, occupying more than half of the vineyard, followed by Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sirah and Merlot, Petit Verdot, Gamay and two hectares of Trebbiano Spoletino, a noble Umbrian traditional white wine.
The grapes produce wines of high quality, both for the unique and rare characteristics of the clay soil with consistent siliceous rocks, therefore lightweight, warm and permeable, rich in minerals (a terroir ideal for the vine), as well as, excellent exposure, entirely oriented toward south-south west and with an altitude between 360 to 400 meters, essential requirements for the quality of its wines.
Grape harvesting is done with a careful selection of the grapes and advanced maturation. The selected grapes are immediately transported into the cellar in small 6 kg boxes and vinified. The subsequent fermentation is carried out by using the aid of modern technologies, exclusively in a natural manner, i.e. without the addition of selected yeasts.
The vineyards are cultivated with the goal of obtaining perfectly healthy grapes capable of producing great wines linked to the territory of Montefalco. Our intention, from the beginning, has been to produce wines with strong characteristics, that don’t exclude the reinterpretation of the local vines such as the Sagrantino. The winery has the most modern and advanced technologies, as well as a valuable French oak barrique (Allier, Tronçais, Nievre) built using the experience of famous master coopers (Tarausaud, Demptos, Berthomieux, etc.).
