More about this Producer
The estate covers 130 hectares with 35 hectares of vineyards and is located in the heart of the Montefalco appellation. Scacciadiavoli is divided between the three provinces of Gualdo Cattaneo, Giano dell’Umbria and Montefalco. The vines are located at an average altitude of 400 meters in moderately deep, varying soils. Mixed between sand, schist and the typical clay soils of the area, the terrain is well suited for quality viticulture, focusing on late maturing varieties like the indigenous Sagrantino.
Amilcare Pambuffetti became the owner of the estate when he bought Scacciadiavoli in 1954. While maintaining its original architectural and structural elements, the winery was renovated and modernized in the year 2000. The winery is built into the hill consisting of four vertical levels allowing the use of gravity throughout the production. The grapes arrive from the vineyards directly at the fourth and highest level of the winery. They are then moved down to the third level where they are fermented and vinified in wood or stainless steel vats.
