Farm

This working farm was started by Prof. Giuseppe Ragnotti, grandfather of the current owner, at the end of the 1800s. Professor of Anatomy at the University of Perugia, he always had a great passion for agriculture, so much so that during the second half of his life he dedicated himself completely to the production of wine and olive oil of the highest quality.

 

The olive oil produced by his press received high esteem in reviews and numerous prizes amongst which two stand out particularly; the Golden Medal for olive oil “Ila Esposizione Campionaria Internazionale” at Foligno in 1902, and the Diploma of Merit for Work in the Field of Production of High Quality Olive Oils in 1913. It is with the same passion that we continue in the same traditions.

UMBRIA IGT ROSSO

For this wine we choose the best Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. Ruby red in colour, its taste is harmonious and well structured with pleasant freshness and strong vinosity. It goes excellently with first courses, red meat, salami and young cheeses. Best served at around 18oC.

UMBRIA IGT BIANCO

For this wine we choose the best Grechetto and Trebbiano grapes. It is straw yellow in colour and has a decidedly elegant and subtle taste. The smell contains the white grapes and hints of spices. It best accompanies first courses of fish, fish dishes, cold starters, soups and white meat. Best served at around 12°C.

EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

The business farm of Pieve San Sebastiano includes about 10 hectors of olive groves, concentrating on varieties Leccino, Frantoio, Moraiolo and Dolce Agogia. The olives are picked by hand and are processed in a nearby olive press, selected by the business because it guarantees an immediate cold press, necessary to obtain a high quality product. The extra virgin oil, after a natural process of sedimentation, is clear in appearance and has an intense green-yellow colour. Its smell is pleasant and harmonious, characterised by fruity notes and spicy vegetable tones, with the clean smell of fresh grass. Its taste is rounded and well balanced between sweet and sharp flavours. The qualities of this oil are brought out in its accompaniment of food, particularly grilled vegetables and meat, with which it creates a rich fusion of tastes. The complex characteristics of this oil show the marked stability in the many harvests, year after year, thanks to the age old variety of stock. The business takes pleasure in making an early press which guarantees perfect level of acidity and an explosion of perfume and taste in the oil. Oil production is a long-standing family tradition, started by the grandfather of the current owner, who made known the high quality of his produce, winning many prizes at the start of the last century, the documentation of which is still preserved.
