Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

IGT Umbria, Arnèto, Bellafonte - 2018

Compared to Sperella, Arnèto has extra density and richness, but without weighing the wine down, as the maturing on fine lees in large casks allows it to retain maximum freshness. It opens with beautiful aromas of truffles, almond and broom. The palate is ample and frank, chiselled, delicate: gastronomic! Falstaff : 92/100

This wine is made using only the best grapes and differs from Sperella in that it is aged in wood.


After a few days of cold maceration on the skins, the must is transferred to large Slavonia oak casks where fermentation starts naturally with the indigenous yeast. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation spontaneously and remains on its lees for more than 7 months before being clarified by decantation. The wine is bottled without filtration in order to preserve its vitality. After bottling, it is refined in the bottle for at least 6 months before being sold.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Rock fish in sauce - Shellfish - Octopus in manzanilla jelly.

Tenuta Bellafonte is located in the heart of the primitive part of the region, a stone's throw from the towns of Bevagna and Assisi. It was founded in the mid-2000s by Peter Heilbron, an international executive with a passion for great wines, who decided to convert to a new career, taking his friend the late Gianfranco Soldera of the legendary Case Basse as his model. He fell in love with this terroir and decided to try to tame the Sagrantino grape variety, which is very generous in colour, tannins and alcohol, in order to create a great red wine that is refined and capable of aging gracefully. But his talent does not stop there, as he now produces a range of wines that shines with its accuracy and its fidelity to the local terroir, full of character.
