Montefalco Rosso DOC is a unique blend of grapes typical to the Umbria region aged for a minimum of 18 months before being released on the market. The long ageing process results in a medium to full-bodied wine with soft tannins balanced by good acidity. Aromas are abundant with mulberry and lemon, followed by gentle notes of herbs. Hints of gooseberry and citrus fruit accompany flavours of raspberry and apples.

Cantina Pardi harvests their grapes by hand in early October. Fermentation with the skins then takes place for ten days in steel tanks. Further elevation takes place in oak barrels for 12 months and steel tanks for six months before being refined in the bottle for four months.

Cantina Fratelli Pardi, Umbria

The Pardi brothers opened their winery in the early 1900s and they have passed down their winemaking experience to the generations that followed. Just a stone's throw from the ancient walls of the town of Montefalco, Cantina Fratelli Pardi is at the heart of the Sagrantino DOCG area. The 11-hectare vineyards are nestled over gently rolling hills creating an ideal and unique terroir.

Sangiovese

The Sangiovese grape is the most widely planted red grape variety, particularly in central Italy, with 71,500 hectares under vine. Sangiovese is often referred to as the Tuscan grape. Wines made purely with Sangiovese tend to be light-bodied, high in acidity, fairly tannic with cherry, plum, dried herbs, and peppery notes. Savgiovese's natural characteristics make it incredibly suitable for oak ageing.

Sagrantino

Sagrantino grapes are almost exclusively grown in Umbria. Although its origins are disputed, Sagrantino has been cultivated in Italy for centuries. Varietal Sagrantino wines usually have a very high tannin content and showcase distinct notes of morello cherry, blackberry, and spices. Due to its high tannins, Sagrantino ages very well in oak barrels.

Merlot

Merlot is a renowned international grape thought to be of French origin. In France, it is used in Bordeaux blends along with Cabernet Sauvignon. Italian Merlot grapes are mostly grown in Northern Italy and are very popular in single varietal wines and blends. Merlot wines are low in tannins, smooth, easy to drink with notes of cherry and plums.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is arguably the most internationally acclaimed grape variety in the world. The Cabernet Sauvignon grape is a cross between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. The vines of this grape are highly adaptable to most soils and climates and maintain their key characteristics even in different terroirs. Cabernet Sauvignon wines are usually dark red with a fairly high tannin content and aromas of ripe dark fruit, spices and wood.
