Our History

Perticaia, in the archaic language of Umbria, was the word by which the plough was called, probably the tool that more than any other represents the symbol of the transition from sheep-farming to agriculture, with which the whole of humanity has in fact established a deep and indissoluble bond with the land. It is precisely because of this inseparable bond with the land that a deep rootedness in the territory has consequently been created. We are in Montefalco, the land of olive oil and Sagrantino, in the Casale district: this is where the Becca family's 50 hectares of vineyards meet.


So it is that in the heart of green Umbria, after purchasing the land and planting the vineyards, construction of a modern winery began, perfectly integrated into the surrounding environment. Among the rows of vines, apart from Sagrantino of course, there are also varieties of Sangiovese, Colorino, Trebbiano Spoletino and Grechetto. In any case, vines grown in full respect of the environment, nature and the ecosystem.


In the winery, every production step is aimed at enhancing what the season and the territory have been able to express in the fruit. In this way, today Perticaia is a model organic winery for the territory: a winery capable of producing wines of great expressiveness and elegance, to be discovered one by one, to get in touch with Umbria. With the most representative grape varieties of the entire region and of the Montefalco area in particular.

The Sagrantino grape


Sagrantino Grape: Sagrantino is a grape variety of which there are numerous news and historical testimonies dating back to the most ancient times. Plino il Vecchio, in his Historia naturalis, describes Itriola, a typical grape of the territory, which according to some scholars could be identified with the Sagrantino grape. Other sources suggest that the vine was imported from Asia Minor by the followers of San Francesco: The name would be traceable to the Sacraments because the grapes were cultivated by the friars who derived a passito intended for religious rites.

Our Wines



First Bottle

The first year of Perticaia’s sagrantino from the new  vineyard. The 2203 production was limited to one cluster for plant.A clearly unbalanced vintage, marked by a stifling summer. To the nose, it is intense, with dark hints of spices and ripe fruit. In the mouth it is voluminous and the tannins are still lively today. Considering that heat and the young age of the vineyard,this wine,today,is king of miracle.

Rediscovery of native varieties

Trebbiano spoletino is an autochthonous vine of Umbria, that does not have any relation to the other Trebbiani in central Italy except in name, but in this case it seems to derive from the city of Trevi, located near Spoleto, in the province of Perugia, unlike the other Trebbiani, for which it derives instead from the Latin "Trebula", or farm. Trebbiano Spoletino differs from other Trebbiani also for the organoleptic characteristics of its wines, for its aromas of aromatic herbs and citrus retrolfattive notes, along with a strong crispness and flavor.

Conversion to organic

Today Perticaia is a model organic winery for the region. A winery capable of producing wines of great expressiveness and elegance, to be discovered one by one to get in touch with Umbria, and with those that are the most representative vines of the whole region and of the Montefalco area in particular.
