Perticaia

In the archaic language of central Italy “Perticaia” means the plough, an implement symbolic of agricultural activity. The plough marked the passage from anima herding to agriculture. The "PERTICAIA ESTATE" began making wine in the year 2000, when Guido Guardigli, after many years of experience as director of winemaking estates in Tuscana and Umbria, decided to become a proprietor. The choice of the territory could not have been another. "MONTEFALCO", an area already known for the great potential and personality of the local grape variety "SAGRANTINO" was chosen. The farm was originally about 20 hectares of which 2.5were olives trees and 1.5 were vineyard. This has now been transformed by the planting of 14 hectares of vineyards and the building of a modern winemaking cellar. The wines are aged in small barrels of French oak, in barriques or in tonneaux, in the 18th century cellar under the proprietor’s home in the small medieval village, Gualdo Cattaneo. The vines are all planted on a hillside with a gentle slope and are at 300 to 350 meters above sea level. The vineyards face predominantly southwest. The soil is of a medium consistency with the presence of stones which favor good water drainage. These are all indispensable elements for obtaining a grape of excellent quality
