La Montata winery is located in the northern area of Sant’Angelo in Vado. Entirely sheltered from the northerly winds, part of its vineyards are at the altitude of approximately 400m above sea level, with the exposure that benefits from cool Apennine climate that reduces humidity typical for the area in very hot summer days and allows to enjoy exceptional temperatures ideal for aromas development in September.
Grape varieties grown at the winery include Trebbiano Toscano, Sangiovese, Alicante, Aleatico and Montepulciano. All the grapes are hand-picked and placed in small crates 3-5 kilograms each and pressed afterwards. Fermentation and ageing is carried out in small wooden casks (220 and 112 litres) as per Marche Region IGT Protocol.
During vilification process the winery utilises a very special technique of drying the grapes in the barnes with operating fireplace, thus enabling the wines to capture smokey aromas and creating unique smoked sweet wines.
