Who?
Tenuta Alzatura is owned by Famiglia Cecchi, Tuscan winegrowers since 1893, owners of Villa Cerna, Castello di Montaùto, Val delle Rose and Villa Rosa. Cecchi purchased this estate in the late 1990s, their first venture outside of their homeland of Tuscany. Andrea Cecchi realised the great potential of Sangiovese in Umbria, but more importantly, the region's signature variety, Sagrantino.


Where?
Montefalco is a small region of around 800 hectares in the landlocked region of Umbria in Central Italy. This region shares a border with Tuscany, so the wines often fall into the sphere of influence of their more important neighbour, certainly with the use of Sangiovese, one of the two important black varieties grown here. The other main variety is Sagrantino: a vine which nearly disappeared in the 1960s, but it's undergoing a strong revival, mostly but not entirely down to the work of pioneering viticoltore Arnaldo Caprai, whose wines firmly put this variety back on the map. This great work is being continued by a band of highly motivated small producers such Tenuta Altazura. There are interesting developments for the future as well, particularly the Montefalco Bianco, made from the local variety of Trebbiano Spoletino.

Why?
The Montefalco Rosso and Montefalco Sagrantino are two our superstars in our Italian range, both offering excellent value for money, but more importantly a true and authentic sense of place and variety.
