Gatto gatto DOC Orvietano Rosso castello di Montegiove

Gatto Gatto - Orvietano Rosso D.O.C.

The name of this wine is inspired by the medieval battlecry of the warlord Gattamelata and of his garrison, who took possession of the Castle of Montegiove during the late XV century. Gatto Gatto is produced from a blend of the traditional Umbrian varieties Sangiovese and Canaiolo with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and is Mis en Bouteille au Château.  It is a realtively young wine maintaining a fresh and fruity character after a light aging on large oak casks and older barriques and tonneaux. Brilliant ruby red colour with purple hues and it appears vividly fragrant yet also suave and enveloping. It compliments most culinary occasions and does not require strict matching. To be served with hors d’oeuvres, cheese, cured meat, first dishes, poultry and fowl.
