Gatto Gatto - Castello di Montegiove - Orvietano Rosso D.O.C.
The name of this wine is inspired by the medieval battle cry of the warlord Gattamelata and 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 varietals Sangiovese and Canaiolo Nero and is Mis en Bouteille au Château. It is a relatively young wine that maintains a fresh and fruity character after a short aging in large oak casks and older barriques and tonneaux. It has a brilliant ruby red colour with a slight purple hue, is intensely fragrant, yet is also complex and enveloping. Gatto Gatto compliments most culinary occasions and does not require strict matching, but we suggest serving it with hors d’oeuvres, cheeses, cured meats, poultry and fowl. “Transparent ruby red wine. Nose of cherry, red currant, violet and herbs. Balanced taste with well managed and integrated tannins. Fresh, dry finish with aromatic herbs reminiscences.”
