Conestabile Della Staffa Nuovo is a natural red wine made by Vini Conestabile Della Staffa with the Sangiovese variety in the IGP Umbria, in Italy.
Vini Conestabile Della Staffa was the most important winery in Trasimeno-Perugino in the Umbria Region at the end of the 19th and early 20th century. It is now run by Danilo Marcucci, one of the most talented winemakers in Italy. They have 12 hectares of vineyards that were planted in the 70s and the grapes are naturally vinified without filtering or adding sulphites.
Conestabile Della Staffa Nuovo comes from their own vineyards that lie at an altitude of 300-400 metres on gentle slopes. These are old vines planted in sedimentary clay soils on a limestone marl bed. They are cultivated using ecological agriculture and no chemical products and the grapes are naturally harvested.
In the winery, the partially destemmed Conestabile Della Staffa Nuovo grapes undergo semi-carbonic vinification in open-top tanks with some cap plunging. The wine is then aged in second-hand fibreglass tanks.
Conestabile Della Staffa Nuovo is a crisp, tannic, very fresh but cozy wine with a label that shows the glass tank where it was vinified. This tank dates back to 1970 and looks like the Apollo Moon Lander.
