Montefalco Rosso is a wine made following artisanal and sustainable methods.
Montefalco is a typical Umbrian wine with great versatility, which can match the complexity of a great wine with freshness and drinkability. It’s made mostly from the grapes of Sangiovese with a small percentage of a well-known indigenous grape, Merlot and Colorino. An ideal companion for a wide variety of dishes.
Floral scents, reminiscent of violets, accompanied by fruity notes of ripe cherry and lightly spicy notes. Well structured wine, balanced with soft tannins and good persistence.
The vineyard is treated with natural grass regeneration techniques (land planting), using only organic and mineral fertilisers without the use of chemical products or herbicides.
