Customer Service

Perticaia is a stellar producer based in Montefalco, Umbria, and produces not only one of the greatest Sagrantinos, but a range of other excellent wines, including the super-rare Trebbiano Spolentino white. Guido Guardigli consulted to other Sagrantino producers for many years before setting up this new winery in 2000, supposedly as a “retirement” project. The quality goes without saying; tre bicchieri awards are standard issue here.

The vineyard of Perticaia is planted on a gentle, southwest-facing slope 300-350 metres above sea level. A useful proportion of stones in the soil favours good drainage. The grapes for this wine come from eight hectares of the estate, planted to a low cordon-trained and spur-pruned system with 5,500 plants per hectare. Yields are kept low to maximize concentration.

After destemming and gentle crushing, the grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for one week. The wine was then aged for nine months before release: six months in tank and three in bottle.

Ingredients: Sangiovese 80%, Colorino 10%, Merlot 10%. IT MAY CONTAIN SULPHITES. Abv 13 %.
