Description

Details of wine

Bordolese cut (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) whose name Chiù, as Pascoli called the Assiolo, refers to a bird present from spring to late autumn. The presence of this volative also testifies to the purity and integrity of the environments where this winery grows its own vineyards. Despite the use of international grapes, this organic red wine is also stamped with a unique stamp. It is a wine of great body character, with velvety and consistent tannins, persistent for a long time. Lively and very well structured. In addition to a deep nose color, intense aromas of ripe fruit and spices can be perceived.

The wine estate Azienda Agricola Valturio was founded by Adriano Galli and Isabella Santarelli in 2002 with the aim of restoring the production of high quality wine to Montefeltro following centuries-old traditions that date from the times of the Dukes of Montefeltro to the beginning of the last century. At the beginning of the nineteen hundreds, the Antimi Clari family, one of the most illustrious of Macerata Feltria, repeatedly won gold medals at the National Wine Exposition of Turin and traces of old barriques can still be found in the cellars of Palazzo Gentili Belli. The late lawyer Egisto Gentile Belli narrated that at the beginning of the last century, his family was supplying products from its spinning-mills to France in exchange for small oak barrels used for aging wine. The wine estate has been called Valturio in tribute to Roberto Valturio, the son of Cicco de' Valturii who lesft his native town of Macerata Feltria in 1396 and moved to Rimini, where Roberto was born in 1405. Roberto Valturio was an emblematic man of his time, whose culture ranged from literature and science and technology, and who bodly possessed those of genius and enterprise tha are so typical of the Renaissance. After a periodo in Rome with pope Eugene IV, Valturio returned to Rimini where he was appointed Court Advisor during the rule of Sigismondo Malatesta. His work De re militari was completed in 1455 and printed in 1472 in a fampous figurative inculabulum, granting his supranational fame and prestige and even drawing the accolade of Leonardo da Vinci.
