MONTEFALCO ROSSO D.O.C.
A combination of the power of Sagrantino and the elegance of Sangiovese, the Montefalco Rosso from Tenuta
Castelbuono, which is certified as organic, expresses all the charm of a region with an age-old winemaking tradition.
A brilliant ruby red in colour.
It immediately strikes one with the elegance and complexity of its broad aromas of cherries and cloves, which give way to balm-like tones.
The same elegance is to be found on the palate: a wine of splendid balance, which is mouth-filling and remarkably powerful, yet very fresh. It is already extremely enjoyable, but will also undoubtedly benefit from a little ageing.
Grapes: 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, 15% Cabernet and Merlot, harvested by hand in September and October.
Production area: Family-owned vineyards at Montefalco and Bevagna.
Type of soil: A clay-silt mix with excellent agronomic potential, well-structured and resistant to summer drought.
Training system: Cordon Spur, 6250 vines per hectare.
Yield: 55 hectolitres of wine per hectare.
Fermentation temperature: Cold pre-maceration at 12°C for 20 hours. Maximum fermentation temperature: 26°-28°C in stainless steel.
Maceration period: 15-20 days.
Ageing: 12 months in 225 litre barriques and 500 litre tonneaux, followed by a minimum of 6 months in bottle.
Pairings: There are numerous combinations proposed, because it is recognized that the Rosso di Montefalco wine is a versatile wine, which goes well especially with red meat, game and game, grilled meat, but does not disdain even salami and aged cheeses
