2019 Montefalco Rosso D.O.C.

$35.00

Scacciadiavoli’s Montefalco Rosso boasts an intense red ruby color, an expansive, elegant bouquet with scents of cherry, and a soft and voluptuous taste.

According to the ancient wine making tradition of the Montefalco area, after selecting the grapes for the production of the Montefalco Sagrantino, all the other varietals of red grapes were harvested for the production of a blended fresher wine, to accompany all type of dishes – the result is the Montefalco Rosso D.O.C

This wonderful Montefalco Rosso D.O.C is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, and once bottled, a further 6 months. The intensity of the bouquet, flavour and long finish lends this wine to decanting.

It’s definitely a wine that will wow any red wine lover. Enjoy it with something special on your fork, and make sure to take a look at the amazing history of this winery.

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

A full bodied, delicious example of a Montefalco Rosso D.O.C from Scacciadiavoli.

This deep, ruby red wine holds violet and light garnet hues, and reveals the most enjoyable bouquet; immediately the drinker identifies notes of dark cherry and raspberry, with secondary aroma of earthy spices, smoke and leather. Lastly, hints of vanilla and oak feature.

 

To drink this wine is to really enjoy a great glass of a central Italian red, long, decadent and persistent in the mouth and super enjoyable with the right food pairing.

 

A delicious pasta with a red sauce ragu, traditional lasagne or even a rice casserole would make a wonderful match to this wine. On the meat side, crumbed veal and roasted vegetables, beef stew, or a Sunday roast chicken would also be perfect. For something more casual, try beef tacos, duck liver pate on freshly baked bread, or roasted chestnuts.

 

No matter whether you enjoy this wine with a meal, or on its own – make sure you use a decanter 1 to 2 hours before enjoying. This will bring out the multiple layers of flavour and increase the enjoyment for the drinker.

 

Optimal Serving Temp: 18-19 Degrees Celsius

 

The Winery

Founded in 1884, the Scacciadiavoli (“He who casts the devil out”, from scacciare – to banish, and diavoli – devils) winery takes its name from an exorcist that lived in a town at the borders of the property who used the wine for his rituals.

It was founded by Roman Prince Ugo Boncompagni Ludovisi, an imposing oenological complex, highly advanced for the epoca. In 1954 Amilcare Pambuffetti, at 71, bought the Scacciadiavoli holding, where at the age of 14 he had worked as a farm hand. Upon his death in 1977 his sons continued the activities that had begun with their father.

In the year 2000 the Pambuffetti brothers, the children of Settimio, in the name of an ancient tradition, decided to take the winery into their own hands – the oldest of its kind in the area. The winery has never stopped its production since 1884. As it lies on a hill, with a vertical building on four levels of which one is below ground, all the production takes place by gravity-feed flow technology.

 

As it stands today, the dimensions of the property are of 130 Ha of which 40 Ha are dedicated to grapevines. Current annual production is of around 250,000 bottles. The vines, at an average altitude of 400m above sea level, are situated on sandy-clay soil of medium depth, highly suited for quality viticulture specialized in late vine varieties such as Sagrantino. The vines occupy various hillsides in the municipalities of Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo and Giano dell’Umbria.

 

We range the Scacciadiavoli Umbria Rosso I.G.T, Montefalco Rosso D.O.C, Montefalco Sagrantino D.O.C.G & Montefalco Grechetto D.O.C in our unique wine portfolio.
