Italian Sangiovese wine Castello Monte Vibiano Mon Vi 2004 is a Colli Perugini Rosso DOC, produced with the best grapes from their Umbria, Italy vineyard. This Italian Sangiovese blend is 70% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. It undergoes both fermentation processes in stainless steel tanks. About 80% of the wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks, while 20% is aged in French Oak barrels for one year. After the wine is bottled, it rests for another 2 months before its release. A perfect wine to drink with hard cheeses and stewed meats.
Vecchio is located in the Italian pastoral setting of Umbria, between Florence and Rome. Gently rolling hills and a sunny, mild climate create the best and ideal setting for both vineyards and olive groves. Owner Lorenzo Fasola-Bologna has overhauled both his vineyards and his winery to produce complex and seductive wines. Lorenzo’s family has produced and bottled wine on his family’s estate for countless generations. After making a substantial investment in technology, expert consultants, and varietals, Lorenzo is taking winemaking, as well as his estate olive oil production, to a new level. He won’t stop until his Castello Monte Vibiano wines are a household name.
