About us

Bartoloni family has specialized in agriculture since 1800 and owns a total of 170 hectares of land. Our winery was realized only in 2011 after 60 years of wine growing expertise.
Three generations of the Bartoloni family have contributed to the construction of the winery; grandfather Paolo who has dedicated his life to agriculture and moreover has always specialised in vine growing (he was president of the local Community Winery Colli Spoleini for more than 20 years); his son Giovanni who had the courage to believe in the investment necessary to realise one of the most modern wineries in the area; and grandson Paolo who with his degree in agricultural studies will dedicate the rest of his life to wine production.

Technology and Environment
The winery is completely autonomous from an energy point of view having photovoltaic panels integrated in the roof which produce 65 Kw/h of electric energy.

Winery

The winery can be found in the middle of 28 hectares of land that were purchased by the Bartoloni family in 1993 from the Diocese of Spoleto. Situated on a splendid hill top with a 360 degree panorama view of on one side the Monti Martani mountains and on the other side the city of Montefalco. Today the area of Montefalco is above all famous for the extraordinary wines that it produces such as the Montefalco Sagrantino Passito DOCG, a sweet desert wine with a high alcohol content,the Montefalco Sagrantino dry wine with its very well sustained tannins and the Montefalco Rosso DOC wine which is a blend of sagrantino and other grapes local to the area.
The secret of wines quality is our terroir. It is a silt-clay soil moderately calcareous, fresh and deep with the vines exposed to the south-east and a plantation density of 4.200 vines per hectare.
Included in the land is an area where it is said that Saint Clare of the Cross (Santa Chiara della Croce), who lived around the turn of the 12th century, used to shepherd her sheep. In those times there was a water spring that is now long gone where she used to lead her flock to drink whilst she prayed. This area which covers approximately 5 hectares now harvests 4 different types of high quality white grape vines.

Production:
We have a storage capacity of 270,000 liters giving us a future production capacity of 300,000 bottles. The Vineyard extends over 20 hectares of DOCG quality terrain. The processing site is of the latest generation and has the highest technology actually present on the market including a manual sorting system for the selection of cru, heating and cooling system for the storage tanks and the hall using touchscreen technology and holding tanks for tartaric stabilization up to -6°C.

Barrels and Barriques:
Using the best quality wood on the market, our barriques and barrels have a capacity of 25,000 liters and are made up of Slavonic Oak and Allier Oak. The process is completed by 2 full filtration systems and a complete bottling line with a capacity of 1,600 bottles/hour.

Extra virgin Olive Oil

The olives are cultivated in the surrounding countryside areas of Castel Ritaldi, Giano dell'Umbria and Spoleto in ancient groves (in the area of Giano there is an Olive tree dating back to 1600) and also in modern groves on hilly terrain with excellent exposure and slopes to guarantee correct rain water drainage.
In this way the olives are small, compact, sour to the taste and of a green colour with shades of gold tending to black.

The harvest is carried out directly from the plant to guarantee the freshness of the product and the olives are cold ground (not above 20°C) within 10 hours of the harvest to prevent any mould or other impurities.

The product stands out because of its aroma, colour and its insignificant level of acidity. No additives or other products are added to the oil which could alter the visual aspect or aroma of the oil.
The different types of olives are selected and blended in expert measures to ensure the quality.
