Winemaker Notes

Lacrima of Fattoria Calcabrina is a macerated white wine, obtained from Grechetto grapes with the addition of small quantities of Trebbiano and Malvasia. The harvest takes place in boxes in the second half of September. Partly integral fermentation (with stem). The wine does not undergo any treatment, but this does not mean it has defects, quite the opposite. Lacrima comes from a vineyard located 400m above sea level in Pietrauta, old vines grow high on the hill in the heart of Montefalco.


The Story

Calcabrina winery is a family-run farm located near Montefalco, active in the field of viticulture and the production of goat's cheese. Diego Calcabrina, born in 1980, is the essence of this small farm together with his father Angelo. The business has been transformed into a "farm" in the early 2000s and from 2005 organic and biodynamic principles are observed. The animals were included in the project in order to have natural fertilizers to feed Sagrantino vineyards. The vineyards are located at 400 meters above sea level right next to Montefalco, with a north-east exposure. The winery can count on a total of 2 hectares planted in Sagrantino about 15 years ago. The cultivation method is spurred cordon, the soil is rich in skeleton mixed with clay and has a significant presence of sandstone. Just 4000 bottles produced per year.
Natural vinification, manual harvest, spontaneous fermentation, no added sulfur.
