About the Producer

The history of Cantina Goretti spans over four generations of the same family who passed the business down from father to son since its founding in the early 1900s. Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, Cantina Goretti has maintained its reputation for quality, passion, and pride.

Today, the fourth generation of the Goretti family – represented by Sara and Giulia - is committed to the pursuit of quality, cutting-edge research and wine-making techniques, while also engaging in spreading the Umbrian culture and tradition around the world.

In addition to the historic Pila cantina in Perugia, home of the DOC Colli Perugini, the Goretti family founded “The Saracen Wall,” a modern winery in Montefalco. It specializes in the production of two important red wines: Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG and Rosso di Montefalco DOC.


Grapes

100% Grechetto grapes, indigenous Umbrian variety


Vineyard

The vineyards are situated in the Colli Perugini wine district and extend over a hilly, plentiful and sunny territory. The average altitude above sea level, is 330 metres. The Grechetto vineyard has east-west exposure, on medium textured, clay-limestone soil. Density is 4000 plants/ha with a yield of 7.5 tons/ha.


Vinification

Harvest: early September exclusively by hand. Grape selection begins in the vineyard - where the grapes ripening is strictly controlled - and continues in the winery, on the grading machine. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature.


Ageing

Once stabilization is completed, ageing takes place first in stainless steel tanks and in the bottle for 1-2 months.


Tasting Notes

Colour: light straw-yellow with faint greenish hues. Nose: deep and elegant with fruity notes reminiscent of pineapple, banana, yellow peach as well as Scotch broom flowers and almonds. On the palate, crisp and fully flavoured, well-balanced, distinguished and with lingering after taste.
