|Description:||Produced from blending the traditional Umbrian varieties of Sangiovese and Montepulciano, some vines being 40 years old, it is both produced and bottled in the Castle. It is a young wine with a fresh and fruity character. It has a bright ruby red colour, with purple hues, and a fresh berry aroma. Not complex in taste, it has a taste of plum and alcohol on the finish.
The name Gatto Gatto is inspired by the medieval battlecry of the warlord Gattamelata, who lived in the Castle during the late XV century.
Castello di Montegiove is a 1300 hectare farm and vineyard nestled in the Umbrian hills. Built in 1281, it is at a height of 627m above sea level, which today lets it produce extremely fine wines of distinctive character and quality. Many of the vines grow on the slopes of the Umbrian valley, which has a microclimate giving good ventilation and consistent cool temperatures. Numerous young wines from the Montegiove are able to be kept for years, although good enough to drink right now.
