Cantina Fratelli Pardi story begins in 1919 when the three brothers, Alfredo, Francesco and Alberto establish it. The winery was, back then, located on the ground floor of the San Marco Hospital, that belonged to the stately building of Saint Francis in Montefalco. The grapes, used in the wine production, partly belonged to the family and some were bought from other local landowners.
White and red wines were produced and marketed, but it was the Sagrantino, exclusively Passito, to be the foremost. The wines were sold all over Umbria, and eventually out of the region, to eminent customers such as the Vatican. In 2002 the founders’ great grand-sons, Francesco, Gianluca Rio and Alberto Mario, driven by the will of the Pardi family to keep on the tradition, and with the help of their parents Agostino and Alberto, restore the building in Montefalco and revive their great-grandfathers’ winery. Today the brothers Alberto Mario and Gianluca Rio, with their enthusiasm and hard work, are the new era of the Pardi wine’s legacy.
Grechetto is an ancient white grape variety native to the Umbria region of Italy. It is highly regarded for producing wines of remarkable quality and character.
Grechetto wines typically display a vibrant straw yellow color, often with golden reflections. On the nose, they offer a complex aromatic profile that combines notes of ripe stone fruits, such as peach and apricot, with hints of white flowers, honey, and herbs.
The palate showcases a medium to full-bodied texture, accompanied by a refreshing acidity that brings balance and liveliness to the wine. Flavours of citrus fruits, tropical fruits. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering impression of its complexity and elegance.
Grechetto is a versatile grape that lends itself well to a range of winemaking styles. It can be vinified as a single varietal wine or blended with other white varieties like Chardonnay or Trebbiano. This flexibility allows winemakers to craft wines that vary in style and expression, from crisp and refreshing to rich and age-worthy.
Its wines are particularly well-suited to accompany seafood, poultry, and fresh cheeses.
