Cantina Margò Rosso is a natural red wine made in the IGP Umbria (Italy) by Cantina Margò with the Sangiovese variety.
Cantina Margò was set up by Carlo Tabarrini in 2008 in the town of Perugia, in the rugged inland province of Umbria. A lover of the vineyard who used to watch his grandfather and father grow grapes to sell and make wine for themselves to enjoy. He started this project with 5 abandoned hectares where, using ecological and biodynamic practices, he lets the grapes ferment in peace and without much technology to then be able to extract the maximum expression of the terroir with natural vinification.
The Cantina Margò Rosso wine is made with organically grown grapes. The strains are between 25 and 45 years old and are planted in limestone and clay soil, by a lake that is rich in loam. Starting from a philosophy of minimal intervention, he uses biodynamic methods like natural composting and special herbal sprays, working in line with the astronomical calendar. The grapes are harvested by hand.
Once the grapes reach the winery, they are destemmed and gently pressed. No additives are used to make the Cantina Margò Rosso. It spends 25 days in contact with the skins without controlling the temperature. It ferments spontaneously in stainless steel and fibreglass. Then 80% ages in oak barrels
and the remaining 20% in stainless steel tanks. It is bottled without being filtered or adding sulphur.
Cantina Margò Rosso is a natural, ecological and biodynamic red wine that shows the power and body of the Sangiovese, one of the best known varieties in Italy.
