Thank to an accurate requalification and selection, the vineyards can now produce first quality grapes allowing to obtain the wines typical of the Assisi area. In order to guarantee the highest quality, the grapes are harvested by hand and selected with the most updated technology directly at the winery. Furthermore, the whole production will soon be converted into fully organic so as to highlight and certify the untouched beauty and authenticity of the area.
Wine prepares hearts and makes them more ready for passion.
Ovidio (43 a.C. – 17 d.C.)
The tract of the valley that separates the lowermost slopes of the Subasio mountain from the outskirts of the little town of Santa Maria degli Angeli, is still untouched with the exception of a few medieval rural buildings. The Tescio creek that crosses the plain flows peacefully towards the nearby Chiascio river to become its tributary at the height of the former San Paolo delle Abbadesse Benedictine nunnery.
And yet I believe that a lot of happiness is to the men who are born where good wines are found.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519)
The name place Ponte Rosso (Red Bridge) denominating a trait of this plain is clearly referred to the creek and to the bridge that allows to cross it. This portion of countryside has always been associated to the production of local wines, Assisi Red and White, once excellent wines without any prestige that, only a few years ago, obtained the recognition of their quality and its official certification. (D.O.C.). Some years ago the Migliosi family, since a long time numbered among the most skilled and qualified local producers, has purchased a magnificent farm estate in the above mentioned area, the so called Ponte Rosso, with plenty of prized vineyards perfectly exposed to the sun. Overlooked by the imposing bulk of St Francis of Assisi sacred monastery, a spectacular viewpoint on the town of Assisi, it winds all along the banks of the creek.
Life is too short to drink mediocre wines.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 – 1832)
Last but not least, exactly at the beginning of 2020, the Migliosi family decided to hire some vineyards in Gualdo Cattaneo, in the DOC area of Montefalco, thus starting the production of two new red wines : Montefalco Red DOC ( a blend) and Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG ( Sagrantino grapes 100%).
Montefalco and its surroundings are undoubtedly the most prestigious wine area in Umbria and Sagrantino is becoming better and better known in Italy and abroad because of its unicity due to this ancient grape impossible to find anywhere else in Italy.
