A full, rich and opulent wine, packed with red berried fruits with a hint of flint and oaky spice. The sumptuous texture built on fine tannins leads to a deliciously long finish.

Di Filippo Sagrantino di Montefalco

Producer

Established in 1971, the family is estate is now run by Emma Di Filippo and her two sons
Francesco and Filippo Franchi. Since 1994, the estate has been certified organic. Di
Filippo believes in respecting the rhythm of nature by adopting organic cultivation and
following the philosophy of biodynamic farming. This in turn, results in lower yields of fruit,
which translates into exceptionally characteristic wines. Situated in Cannara, in
Perugia, the 30-hectare estate overlooks Assisi, on the rolling hills between Torgiano and
Montefalco in Umbria.

With the utmost respect for the environment, four hectares of vineyard has been dedicated to low impact farming, where machines are not used and the work is carried out almost entirely with the help of animals. Draught horses plough the soils, which preserves the soil structure through low compaction; and geese are bred to ‘clean’ the vineyard. Over 400 geese run free and feed on the grass thatspontaneously grows between the vines.
