Napolini

Renowned primarily for its red wines, Umbria has become inseparably linked to winemaking in the areas of Montefalco and Torgiano. And the name of the Napolini winery stands out for the high quality level of its wines, which is of utmost importance.

The company is family-run and is located on the hills of Montefalco, in the green heart of Italy, forty kilometers south of Perugia. An enviable position, three hundred meters above sea level, on the hillside that kisses the horizon of Trevi and Spoleto.

Napolini

Napolini wines are the perfect synthesis of the Montefalco terroir and are appreciated by enthusiasts for their genuineness and longevity.

They are "handmade" and express the essence of an entire territory.

Umbria

Viticulture in Umbria has a long tradition dating back to the Etruscan era, who left their mark on the region culturally and architecturally.
Today, Umbrian wineries are predominantly small to medium-sized, many of them family-run, and they largely follow organic or integrated practices, with a strong focus on environmental sustainability.
Vineyard cultivation is often done by hand, with pruning and harvesting techniques that prioritize fruit quality.

Most vineyards are located in the hills of Umbria, where the climate is mild and the soil is rich in minerals. The climate is generally favorable to viticulture, mild and temperate, with winters cold enough to allow for good plant dormancy, and warm, sunny summers that promote grape ripening. That said, the region experiences quite varied climates depending on altitude, vineyard exposure, and proximity to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Similarly, soil types vary greatly, ranging from clayey areas to more sandy or calcareous terrain. This diversity contributes to the wide variety of wines—both white and red—produced in the region.

Umbria is known for the production of quality wines, particularly Sagrantino di Montefalco and Torgiano Rosso Riserva, but there are also quality production subzones for white wines such as Grechetto di Orvieto.

Montefalco

The Montefalco area is a production area centered around the homonymous village in the province of Perugia, less than 50 km from the capital of Umbria. It is famous for its red wines, particularly two types of wine that have made Umbria renowned: Sagrantino di Montefalco and Rosso di Montefalco.

The first is made from pure Sagrantino grapes and is considered one of the finest wines in Italy. The second, Rosso di Montefalco, is produced from a blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino, and other grape varieties. While it retains the tannic and bold character of the quintessential Umbrian grape, it has a softer and fruitier flavor, less astringent.

Many winemakers and wine enthusiasts consider Montefalco an unmissable destination. The hilltop village is a true medieval gem nestled among fields, and the surrounding landscape, dotted with olive groves and vineyards of Sagrantino with their typical reddish color, is of rare beauty.

Montefalco, with its vineyards and medieval villages, exalts Sagrantino and Rosso wines, excellent wines that tell the story of Umbria in all its splendor.
