The Adanti farm is one of the historic cellars of the Montefalco area in Umbria. They were one of the first to produce Sagrantino wine. The area is also well-known for the lighter-styled wine called Montefalco Rosso, which is not a pure Sagrantino wine, but rather a blend with Barbera, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Now owned by Donatella and Daniela Adanti, the estate is located in the hilly areas of Arquata and Colcimino on approximately 40 hectares of land, which includes 30 for vineyards and 10 for olive groves. This area has been famous since ancient times for the particularly high quality olive oil and wine, and the sisters are committed to carrying on that tradition.

The winery produces mainly red wines from local, indigenous grapes, such as the Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG in both dry and Passito styles: Montefalco Rosso DOC and the Red Arquata Umbria IGT. Though Sangiovese and Sagrantino are the main grape varieties grown and used at Adanti, they also dedicate some vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera, Merlot, and Grechetto.

"Just about any wine you’ll taste from Adanti, be it the whites, the classically dry reds, or the sweet Passito, will be at the top of the quality heap. I have said and written this before, and nothing has happened to since change my mind: simply put, for my money and my taste buds, Adanti is one of the three best estates in all Montefalco and their wines are not just gems but benchmarks of the denomination. In fact, if you really pinned my back to the wall and forced me to pick one Montefalco estate only, the wines of which I’d want on a desert island, well…it’s this one. Montefalco wines just don’t get any better than Adanti’s, and their range of wines is, at least for my money, the best of the denomination." Ian D'Agata, Terroir Sense (June 2022)
