• The Montefalco Rosso DOC, a blend of the Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

CANTINA NOVELLI, a subsidiary of Gruppo Novelli, has held a prominent role in the food industry over the last 40 years. The company is owned by one of the largest, most influential families in Umbria, with total sales proceeds of 120 million Euros. With family-owned land in Montefalco and Spoleto, Stefano Novelli, formerly the financial director of the company, married his love of wine with his love of his homeland to achieve “the winery of reference in Umbria.” Cantina Novelli produces Montefalco Sagrantino, Montefalco Rosso, Trebbiano Spoletino, and a blend of three autochthonous reds: Rosso Cube (Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Cannaiolo) and whites: Bianco Cube (Grechetto, Trebbiano Spoletino and Pecorino). In addition, Cantina Novelli launched a sparkling line in pioneering collaboration with France, producing Sagrantino Rosè de Noir and Trebbiano Spoletino Blanc de Blanc, both made in the traditional method.
