The production of the wines begins with the great attention to the care of the vineyards and the selection of the bunches during the harvest carried out by hand for all the grapes and followed with all the precautions, using modern and traditional methods, for a small but high quality production. . The wines are kept in suitable containers, depending on the processing: in steel tanks or oak barrels, stored in an environment that maintains a constant temperature and allows excellent maturation and aging. Even in the choice of labels we wanted to take care of our production by choosing one for each wine depicting an animal, common in our areas, which could most characterize it.
The winery also produces a DOC white wine Trebiano Spoletino. This wine comes from another native Umbrian variety that has always been linked to the Spoleto area. However, its origin is not known even if Pliny the Elder himself describes other Umbrian grape varieties besides the Itriola. However, in documents of the fifteenth century preserved in the State Archives of Spoleto, the first references to Trebiano in the Spoleto area can be seen. A document that reports the purchase of Trebiano wine from peasants of Castel Ritaldi dates back to 1492, the very year of the discovery of America.
Located in the Sagrantino DOCG area, the winery that wants to combine the most modern oenological techniques with tradition cannot avoid producing Sagrantino passito. The Sagrantino grape, which we now know could have originated either from Itriola described by Pliny the Elder or from plants imported from Syria in the fourteenth century by Franciscan monks, until the early 1970s was processed only for the production of Sagrantino passito. There was no Umbrian peasant home, particularly in the lands that are now included in the Sagrantino DOCG, who did not produce the famous passito that was served and drunk for Easter or on the most important family anniversaries such as weddings
The Cantina delle Terre di San Felice has chosen to produce it according to the old and traditional customs that give this passito an incomparable aroma and sweetness.
