Montefalco Rosso

D.O.C.

Rosso di Montefalco DOC is a full-bodied wine made with three different grapes: Sangiovese (70%), Merlot (15%) and Sagrantino (15%) from the region surrounding the city of Montefalco.
Rosso di Montefalco is a special homage to our lands, an important and unique red wine from the autochthonous Sangiovese and Sagrantino grapes and enhanced their smoothness and softness with local Merlot grapes. The wine requires a long refinement period, initially in barrels and subsequently in bottles.

This name comes from San Fidenzio, Bishop and Martyr. This Saint gave the name also to an Abbey built around the year 1000 a.C. near Massa Martana
