Montefalco Rosso DOC
60% Sangiovese/15% Sagrantino/15% Merlot/10% Montepulciano. From biodynamically farmed, certified-organic, hand-harvested estate fruit. In general, fruit from the younger vines goes into this traditional, non-riserva DOC Montefalco bottling. The different grapes are harvested and vinified separately, as their ripening times vary widely. Fermentation occurs with native yeasts and minimal sulfur in closed stainless steel tank with temperature control; the maceration is approximately 10 days. The wine is blended and aged for a minimum of 18 months in old Slavonian oak botti. It is bottled without fining, filtering or the addition of sulfur.
