2018 CANTINA ROCCAFIORE " FIORFIORE" GRECHETTO DI TODI UMBRIA

100% Grechetto

Cantina Roccafiore farms 15 hectares (almost 40 acres) of vineyards in the rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside near the town of Todi. The Baccarelli family (father and son) bought the property in 1999, planted the local Grechetto and Sangiovese along with small parcels of Moscato Giallo, Sagrantino, and Montepulciano, and made their first vintage in 2005. Formerly in the energy business, they kept a mind toward sustainability from the beginning, building a renewable facility, using organic fuels for their tractors, and farming organically. Young Luca Baccarelli feels that this form of cultivation makes for soils richer in organic materials, fewer vine diseases, and healthier grapes.

Cantina Roccafiore works sustainably in the following ways:

  • reducing the co2 using solar panels, all the required energy comes from this source

  • reducing any environmental impact using organic fuels on the tractors (sunflower oil)

  • using light-glass bottles for reducing the weight on the shipping process

  • saving rainwaters in a reservoir that is used for irrigation (not of vineyards)

  • low intervention and organic farming system on the vineyards for the care of the soil

  • reducing the use of electric machinery on the winery using the gravity

  • the winery is very efficient in terms of energetic consumption and refrigeration (production on the basement)
