The mystical,  historical and the strictly rural Umbria  are well summarized in this estate: an uncontaminated and panoramic oasis of 220 hectares in the green heart of Italy. Count Riccardo Pongelli Benedettonj runs the company started by his great-grandfather, carrying out a project in the lands that for centuries  belong to his patrician family of Todi, and counts among his ancestors the thirteenth-century monk-poet Jacopone, one of the fathers of the Italian language . Glories of the past and the  vocation for modern agricultural live in this organic company that is a return to the original values: family, culture, tradition, wine, essentially Earth! In the Tenuta di Saragano as well as the olive groves, crops, Chianina cattle farms and the refined Hotel de Charme “La Ghirlanda” there are six hectares of vineyards located 500 meters above sea level: a position that, in addition to representing the maximum altitude in the whole area of ​​the Sagrantino, offers the vines excellent ventilation, ensuring quality and healthy grapes.
The bottles produced rest, for the time necessary, in a spectacular underground cellar converted from a medieval cave, divided between Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG which expresses with force but above all with harmony all the characteristics of this territory, Rosso di Montefalco DOC round wine with a deep taste, Umbria Bianco and Rosso IGT, light wines but with personality and a White sparkling Brut with a very light perlage.
