Colpetrone Winery

Còlpetrone became a member of the Saiagricola group in 1995 and is situated in the center of Umbria, a stone's throw from Foligno, Trevi and Bastardo. After a short time it became one of the key estates in the area of Montefalco, due to its spectacular red wine, Sagrantino of Montefalco. In the span of a few years time, Còlpetrone went from obscurity to an ­internationally ­recognized premier Sagrantino producer. The designation of a DOCG appellation for ­Sagrantino di Montefalco in 1992 solidified the standing of both the Sagrantino varietal and Còlpetrone. Today, the estate consists of 345 acres, 155 of which are vineyards. Còlpetrone produces 200,000 bottles annually, offering consumers Rosso di Montefalco, Sagrantino di Montefalco, Gold ­Sagrantino di Montefalco and Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito.
