In 1881 Francesco Antonelli, a lawyer from Spoleto, bought the estate which had belonged to the Archbishop for the previous 600 years. It is still family run today. The entire estate comprises 170 ha of land in the Montefalco DOC appellation area, 40 of which are devoted to vineyards, the rest is covered with olive trees and farmland. The hilly area is an ideal microclimate for vineyards. The vineyards are planted on slopes with an average altitude of 350m. The terroir is clay based and rich in limestone deposits, dating from different geological periods: some parts are very deep, other parts very rich in fossils, both giving the wine intense and varied tones.

Ruby red in colour. Olfactory impact intense and fruity, with hints of cherry and wild berries. To the palate it is dry, balanced and well structured. The freshness provided by the Sangiovese gives it an excellent drinkability.
