Montemelino Umbria Bianco


Overlooking Lake Trasimeno, on the northern tip of Umbria, this tiny farm is run by Margret and Guido Cantarelli. The hills around this interior lake form one of the most unknown wine zones in Italy; Colli del Trasimeno (DOC). There are only a dozen or fewer producers in the appellation.

Montemelino’s farm is roughly 10 ha, with less than 4 being under vine. Farming is organic, the wines are naturally fermented and aged in large slavonian oak barrels that rest both under the farm house and in a tiny chapel on the property (for lack of space and the proper temperature conditions). These are humble, simple wines made in a very genuine and characterful way.

A blend of trebbiano toscano, trebbiano spoletino, and a dash of grechetto, tended to organically and with little-intervention. Aromas of candied lemon, yellow apple, honeysuckle and jasmine. Lively and fresh with a crisp saline finish.

Grape: Blend of trebbiano toscano, trebbiano spoletino, grechetto
