NAPO'S, Umbria, Italy
The Napolini family has been growing grapes on the sunny hills south of Montefalco for centuries. The slopes face the east, benefiting from warm morning sun and a gentle afternoon cooling. Their farming and vinification practices, while not certified, are all in line with natural winemaking. Copper is used in the vineyard only when necessary and native yeasts begin the fermentation process. Wines are typically unfined and unfiltered and sulphur is only used in small amounts at bottling.
