Tenuta Alzatura 2021 Montefalco Rosso
Tenuta Alzatura 2021 Montefalco Rosso

Montefalco is Umbria's most famous DOC for red wines. The region is around 500 hectares, neither particularly large nor small, but among those who know, this is a paradise for those seeking fabulous Sangiovese-based reds of excellent quality and great value.

Tenuta Alzatura has been owned by the Cecchi family since 2015. They have heavily invested in the vineyards; this 2021 is their first certified organic crop. The wine is a blend of Sangiovese in the main, with more minor parts of Sagrantino and Merlot. With this vintage, we believe the quality has been pushed further. Depth of flavour and concentration are abundant, but we love the style of the wine. It is a properly authentic Central Italian red. It is genuinely epic value for money.

Tenuta Alzatura 2022 Montefalco Bianco 'Cortili'
Tenuta Alzatura 2022 Montefalco Bianco 'Cortili'

Cortili 2022 is the result of many years of work by Tenuta Alzatura and its owner Andrea Cecchi. Montefalco is a DOC in Umbria, mostly planted to Sangiovese and Sagrantino for making red wines. A small part of Montefalco is for white wines, with its major variety for this, Grechetto. However, Alzatura has put its efforts into a variety that has all but disappeared, Trebbiano Spoletino. Unrelated to any other variety with the prefix Trebbiano, this variety has the potential for very high quality.

The first few vintages of Cortili had a portion of Chardonnay in the blend, to help complete the palate and fill it out a little bit. With the 2022, the wine no longer needs it. The Cecchi family, with a few vintages under their belt, have now learned how to get the best from this variety. The 2022 is a huge success. A full palate with notes of bitter yellow fruits, hazelnuts, and almonds, together with fresh herbs makes this a highly complex and unique wine.
