Spello - Sportoletti Ernesto e Remo
The Sportoletti family have always also been passionately dedicated to the production of wine in Umbria and at the end of the 1970s the brothers Ernesto and Remo decided to turn their attention exclusively to wine making; treasuring their father Vittorio’s teachings, they introduced on the market the first thousand bottles with their own label.
From there began the long journey in search of the perfect balance between innovation and tradition, endeavouring to realise the full potential of their territory, the hills of Spello and Assisi on which lie the 20 hectares of vineyards now owned by the company. The production in the last ten years has been around 200,000 bottles a year.
In the 1998 the company decided to avail themselves of the higly esteemed enological consultancy of Riccardo Cotarella.
The company also produces organic extra virgin olive oil. Their 2,500 olive trees, predominantly Moraiolo, are cultivated at an altitude of around 500 metres on the slopes of Monte Subasio.
