Montefalco Rosso DOC Riserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Fermentation is made under controlled temperature, preceded by pre-fermentation cold maceration through the best third millennium technologies, respecting tradition. After the first racking, wine start settling in stainless steel vats. Afterwards, it starts malolactic fermentation in cask before entering in barrel and in a long ageing in bottle. The colour is an intense ruby red.

In 2002 Luciano Cesarini, engineer passionate about agricolture, leaves several national and international roles in the energy and bank field to dedicate himself, with his brother Giuseppe and his wife Fiorella, to the wine world. They choose to build their winery on the ancient Flaminia road near the “Caupona of Bastardo”, where carters and other wayfarers sought private hospitality and where, it is said, lived a landlord who served a “sweet and perfumed” wine to people directed to Rome. The land register of 1312 and the Gregorian one of 1800 certify the millenarian vocation for wine of the company’s vineyards. Today the winery is considered one of the most technologically advanced in Europe. After having studied more than 50 winery around Europe, Luciano has projected several original systems, like electromagnetic field insulation and saturated air suction with daily recirculation. Thanks to these advanced technologies the bacterias cannot remain in the cellar, so the family can avoid to use chemistry. They do not use herbicide or chemicals neither in the vineyards: all the grapes are hand-picked and transported in small containers to avoid pre-fermentation, then these are manually selected and sorted on two vibrating tables. With SIGNAE the family wants to repropose the wine of the ancient Umbrian tradition: gentle like its hills, lasting like the character of its people. With the 9 web-cams of the winery is possible to see 24hours every day, via internet, what happens in the cellar and in the vineyards: this is the best quality certification, more than every other certification. With the Osteria of Rossobastardo, which gives a stage to emerging artist searching for their opportunity of visibility, the company brand is now famous all over the world. Read less

Tasting Notes:

The aroma is evolved: bramble and wild berries jelly, cherries, bottled black cherries and dried wild cherries. There is a complex spicy note due to Sagrantino and to the ageing in big cask. In this wine you can also find a firm toasting and a scent of tobacco and vanilla. Acidity is brilliant, tannin is well integrated and smooth; softness and pseudo-caloric sensation give balance and a pleasant harmony to this wine.
