Carlotto is one of our ancestors (1693–1779) and every descendent has been linked to his name in that
'Carlotto' remains the family nickname. The harvest for this wine takes place later than that for the
Montefalco Red, since the Sagrantino grape matures later. It matures until around 10 or 12 October, and
when picked great attention is paid to keeping the bunches intact. Carlotto is made exclusively with
Sagrantino grapes. Collected in 20 kilogram crates, the grapes are brought to the wine-making facility and
immediately pressed and left to ferment for between 12 and 15 days in a steel barrel at a controlled
temperature that never exceeds 25° in order to avoid spoiling the unique scents and fragrances typical of this
extraordinary grape. After fermentation comes the drawing off of the lees and the pressing to separate the
liquid from the skins. Then the wine is transferred to a steel barrel for an initial decantation and after
successive rackings, at the beginning of spring, it is transferred to a large French oak cask, where it remains
for twelve months. The Sagrantino is aged for a total of 36 months, with 4 months of ageing in the bottle.
Each of the 590 bottles produced is numbered by hand.
