Discover the enchantment of Sagrantino Di Montefalco Docg “Sacrantino” 2016 – Cantina Fratelli Pardi.

With just a few ingredients and a simple recipe of one year in stainless steel vats, 18 months in barriques and a further 18 months aging in the bottle, “Cantina Fratelli Pardi” creates an exceptional Sagrantino di Montefalco. The “Sacrantino” is a true representation of the best qualities of this wine, sourced from the single Pietrauta vineyard. This wine is robust and full-bodied, with a determined and characterful taste, yet elegant in both aroma and flavor, perfectly combining structure and refinement. Ideal for your weekend dinners or cozy gatherings with your dear and old friends, this Sagrantino will never disappoint.

Nestled in the beautiful hills of Italy lies the single Pietrauta vineyard, characterized by a sedimentary soil. Strategically located on the east and southeast, at an altitude of 280 meters above sea level, proudly grow the vines that bear 100% Sagrantino grapes.

The exciting harvest period begins in the second half of October. The careful and loving harvest of the grapes is done by hand, using small crates to collect the valuable fruits. The yield of this special vineyard is impressive, with 55 quintals of grapes per hectare, resulting in 35 hectoliters of wine per hectare and a total of 4500 vines per hectare.

Once the grapes are harvested, the vinification process begins, with fermentation on the skins for eight days. The grapes then undergo both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in 26 hectoliter Austrian oak casks for 24 months, followed by a further 9-12 months in stainless steel tanks. Finally, the bottled wine is stored in the cellar for another twelve months to further mature.

When it’s time to enjoy this exquisite wine, there are several delicious food pairing options to choose from. Think of a heartwarming beef stew with buckwheat polenta or slow-cooked calf cheek. Or transport yourself back to grandma’s kitchen with a nostalgic porcini mushroom and sausage risotto. This beautiful wine and tasty dishes will create an unforgettable culinary experience.

In the glass, this wine has a ruby red color with striking garnet hues. The nose is ripe and fruity, with aromas of sun-dried plums, dark cherry jam and cherries in brandy, followed by notes of camphor, dark chocolate, maple syrup, and lavender. The wine is intense on the palate, with a clearly present tannin structure of excellent quality. It is full, warm, and has a long finish.Experience the enchantment of Montefalco Sagrantino and taste the passion with which Cantina Fratelli Pardi creates its exquisite red wine.

Begin your meal with a tasty selection of antipasti, including Prosciutto di Norcia, a soft dried ham with a distinct flavor, accompanied by olives from Spello and a cheese board with local Pecorino and honey from the hills of Umbria. The salty and sweet flavors of these appetizers will beautifully complement the tannins and fruity notes of the Sagrantino.

For the main course, indulge in a traditional Umbrian recipe, such as succulent, slow-roasted lamb with fresh herbs, garlic, and olive oil. As a side dish, opt for a platter of roasted potatoes and artichokes, which will enhance the savory flavors of the lamb and the earthy notes of the Sagrantino.

Another option for the main course is a delicious pasta with truffle sauce, made from fresh black truffles from Norcia, Parmesan cheese, and cream. The rich and earthy truffle flavor will perfectly pair with the powerful tannins and dark fruit aromas of the Sagrantino.

This culinary adventure is a wonderful way to discover the authentic flavors of Umbria and enjoy a perfect food pairing with the impressive Sagrantino wine. Cheers!

The winery

The story begins in 1919 when brothers Alfredo, Francesco, and Alberto Pardi established the Fratelli Pardi winery, then located on the ground floor of the San Marco hospital in Montefalco. At that time, the grapes for production were partly their own and partly purchased from local landowners. Both white and red wines were produced, but the main product was Sagrantino, at that time exclusively passito (dried grape wine). Deliveries covered the entire Umbrian territory and sometimes even beyond, such as to the Vatican.

In 2002, driven by the joint desire of the Pardi family to continue the tradition, the great-grandchildren Francesco, Gianluca Rio, and Alberto Mario, with the help of their parents Agostino and Alberto, renovated the building in Montefalco to revive their great-grandparents’ wine business. Today, brothers Gianluca Rio and Alberto Mario, with their enthusiasm and hard work, strengthen the centuries-old bond between wine and the Pardi family.

The Winery:
A stone’s throw from the town of Montefalco, beneath the ancient city walls, our current winery was established in 2003, dedicated to the entire wine production process, from the cultivation and processing of grapes to the sale of wines. The winemaking area, equipped with stainless steel fermentation vats, is used for fermenting white and red must and storing finished wines. The underground cellar is reserved for aging the wine and is equipped with French barriques and, following tradition, large barrels of oak and Slavonian wood. Here, the bottled wines with designation of origin are also aged: Sagrantino Secco and Passito di Montefalco DOCG, Rosso DOC, and Bianco DOC.

Montefalco is called the “Balcony of Umbria” due to its extraordinary geographical location: it sits atop a hill overlooking the valleys of Clitunno, Topino, and Tiber. Montefalco is famous for the frescoes in its churches and its typical local wines, which are owed to the Franciscan monks who settled in the majestic San Francesco complex in 1340 and started an intense wine-growing activity that continues to this day.

The Vineyards:
The vineyards cover approximately 11 hectares and are located on the rolling hills of Casale, Campolungo, Pietrauta, and Lasignano.
