Della Staffa Litrò Rosso is a natural red wine made by the Conestabile Della Staffa winery with the Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo varieties in the IGP Umbria, in Italy.
Conestabile Della Staffa is an ancient estate on the outskirts of Montemelino, in the Umbria region. Owned by the family of Danilo Marcucci’s wife, this winegrower found an opportunity here to apply his knowledge about natural wines and achieve the purest expression of the place. So, through biodynamic, ecological and minimal intervention methods, he managed to become a leading natural winemaker.
Della Staffa Litrò Rosso comes from a vineyard lying 250-300 metres above sea level with clay soils and limestone rock. These are ancient vines growing in a climate influenced by the nearby Lake Trasimeno. They are ecologically cultivated without any chemical products, instead using biodynamic treatments that maintain the natural balance of the terroir.
In the winery, Della Staffa Litrò Rosso is vinified with minimal intervention. The process begins with spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and a 4-day skin-contact maceration. The wine then ages in fibreglass tanks for 6 months. Finally it is bottled without added sulphites.
Danilo has produced this Della Staffa Litrò Rosso wine by following the methods he has learned over more than 20 years of winemaking and using the agricultural experience of some of the great Italian masters. A 100% natural wine packaged in an original one litre bottle. A wine that will leave you wanting more.
