Collecapretta

A whole lot of raw photos from Collecapretta.  They're am old family winery in southern central Umbria.  Sur ounces by mountains on all sides they're in a sort of geographic bowl, but on top of a hill.  They have vineyards with vines dating back into the 50s in different small plots around the sides of the hill.  Most are south facing but they all vary slightly.  The soil is pale dry and chalky.  Collecapretta has never planted cultivated clones in their vineyards so it's all old locale grapes.  They have Trebbiano Spoletino  (a local version) Malvasia, a local version of Greco, and Sangiovese.  Periodically they'll select some of the best most productive and reliably healthy vines and then send cuttings from those vines to a nursery to be cultivated and then get them back in the spring to replace vines that have died.  In this way they ensure they have healthy vines but also that they're only using the unique grape varieties that have always grown in their vineyards.
