The Sportoletti family, who have been farmers for generations, have always been passionately dedicated to wine production. Towards the end of the 1970s, the brothers Ernesto and Remo, reaping the benefits of what their father Vittorio taught them, decided to dedicate themselves exclusively to wine production. In 1979 the first one thousand bottles were produced with their own label. Since then they have constantly been researching the perfect balance between innovation and tradition, using their skills to take the best advantage of the potential of the land-the hills between Spello and Assisi- where their 30 hectares of vineyard are situated. At present, five different wines are produced: Assisi Rosso DOC, Assisi Grechetto DOC, Villa Fidelia Bianco IGT, Villa Fidelia Rosso IGT e Villa Fidelia Passito IGT. Over the past ten years production has been stable at approximately 200,000 bottles per year. Since 1998 the company has had the excellent advice of the enologist and agronomist Riccardo Cotarella. On the borders of the national park of Monte Subasio, at about 500 metres above sea level, the company has approximately 2000 Moraiolo olive trees, the fruit of which produces an excellent Organic Extra virgin Olive Oil.

Marchesi di Barolo historical cellars are located in the town of Barolo, in the building overlooking the Castle of the Marquis Falletti.
It is here that more than 200 years ago a beautiful story began.
The story of a wine cellar where, in the heart of the Langhe area and protected by gentle hills, a wine was born. This wine, as the French tradition suggests, was called Barolo like the town where it was produced for the first time.
No one at that time could imagine that it was destined one day to be king: the King of Wines, the Wine of the Kings.
Founded in 1884, Cantina Scacciadiavoli, “cast out the devils”, takes its name from a 19th century exorcist who lived in the small village bordering the vineyard. He was known to use the wines while performing his exorcist ritual of ridding poor souls of demons.
Scacciadiavoli is the resulting dream of the Prince of Piombino, Ugo Boncompagni-Ludovisi. In 1884, the estate was built as a complex and modern wine “factory”. Today, the Pambuffetti family owns Scacciadiavoli.
The estate is made up of 130 hectares, 35 of which make up the vineyards with an annual production of approximately 250,000 bottles. The vines cover a hill in the heart of the “Montefalco” appellation divided between the three provinces of Gualdo Cattaneo, Giano dell’Umbria and Montefalco.
