2016 Luca Di Tomaso Montefalco Rosso
 

Winemaker Luca's dream of practicing sustainable agriculture and producing top-quality wines became a reality in the magnificent lands of Umbria. Defined by a rich, deep color, earthy complexity, dusty tannins, and concentrated red-black fruits such as blackberries, plums, cassis, and currant, these wines are ready-to-drink and quite affordable. Pair with pizza and pasta. Va bene!

Grape Varietals: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sagrantino

Organic

This red wine from Umbria has won multiple accolades, including the Commended Award at the 2019 Decanter Wine Awards and an 87/100 by 5Star Wines.

This red has cherry and violet notes and pairs great with most meals, particularly pasta. 

According to owner Luca di Tomaso, "We believe in minimal intervention and a fully hands-on approach. As an organic winemaker, the Azienda [company] is herbicide and pesticide free. We care about the animals and especially the bees that live in our vineyards. We trust in handmade methods and follow the biological phases of the nature, including moon phases. We use green manure to increase soil fertility and spray with just organic substances (copper, sulfur, and essential oils from plants and fruits)."

The grapes they harvest come from their 5.5-hectare vineyard located in Montefalco area of Italy.
