whose wine? what wine? where the hell did I dine!"

Do You Feel Like I Do by Peter Frampton



Montefalco produces some of the greatest wines of Italy that most have never heard of and the Sagrentino grape has more polyphenols than Cabernet Sauvignon making it one of the biggest wines in the big red category.

Umbria also has some unique whites, sparkling wines, roses and lighter style reds to appeal to almost any palate.  Join us was we welcome the owner of Le Climate Winery Paolo Baroloni to South Florida as we sample through a selection of his current releases.  Chef Toni Lampasone will be making a special meal to accompany the tasting wines and the fee for this event is $85 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com

Cantina Le Cimate Montefalco
“LE CIMATE” is situated in one of the most desired loca:ons at the heart of Umbria -Montefalco.  The cantina can be found in the middle of 28 hectares of land that were purchased by the Bartoloni family in 1993 from the Diocese of Spoleto. This site includes the property where the Curate of Casale resided.

The family has specialized in agriculture since 1800 and owns a total of 170 hectares of land, of which 108 hectares are used for grain produce, 15 hectares for DOP olive groves and 20 hectares culivate DOCG vines.

Situated on a splendid hill top with a 360 degree panorama view of on one side the Mont Martani mountains and on the other side the city of Montefalco, the cantina ‘Le Cimate’ takes the name of the actual location. This area which covers approximately 5 hectares now harvests 4 different types of high quality white grape vines.

Today the area of Montefalco is above all famous for the extraordinary wines that it produces such as the Montefalco Sagran:no Passito DOCG, a sweet desert wine with a high alcohol content from which the Montefalco Sagran:no dry wine derives with its very well sustained tannins and the Montefalco Rosso DOC wine which is a blend of sagrantino and other grapes local to the area.

In addition to these wines the can:na “Le Cimate” produces various high quality white wines to complete the range.

Three generations of the Bartoloni family have contributed to the construction of the cantina; grandfather Paolo who has dedicated his life to agriculture and moreover has always specialized in vine growing (he was president of the local community cantina ‘Colli Spoletini’ for more than 20 years); his son Giovanni who had the courage to believe in the investment necessary to realize one of the most modern cellar in the area; and grandson Paolo who with his degree in agricultural studies will dedicate the rest of his life to wine production.
