Scimella is the ancient name of the land from which the grapes come, destined since ancient times to be a vineyard due to its particular position. The grape harvest to be allocated to “Scimella” DOC Montefalco Rosso is done in the last days of September or early October. They are harvested in the right proportions 60% Sangiovese, Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera and 15% native grape variety. Harvested in 20Kg crates, the grapes are taken to the cellar and immediately pressed and left to ferment for about twelve / fifteen days, in steel barrels at a controlled temperature that never exceeds 25 ° C. Once the fermentation is over, the phase of drawing off and pressing follows for the separation of the liquid from the skins. The wine thus passes into a steel barrel for the first decantation and after subsequent decanting, at the beginning of spring, it passes into a large French oak barrel until March of the following year. Put back in steel barrels, in the month of May, after eighteen months, it is ready to obtain its suitability to become the DOC Montefalco Rosso and to be bottled. Once in the bottle, "Scimella" refines for a further period of six months before being sold. Intense ruby red in color, it has a complex aroma, with hints of flowers, red fruit and spices. It goes well with structured first courses, tasty red and white meats. Serve at 18-20 ° C
