History Nestled outside the medieval town of Orvieto, the Decugnano estate has long been associated with winemaking. Records dating from 1212 confirm the presence of monks who dedicated themselves to the cultivation of local vines. The land remained under the ownership of the Church until the unification of Italy in 1861, when the estate was sold to private investors. In 1973 it passed into the hands of the Barbi family, wine merchants since the 1920s, whose work has elevated the quality of the estate’s wines to new levels and gained international recognition for the protected designation of origin of Orvieto Classico DOC.
Soil composition Decugnano dei Barbi comprises 63 hectares in total, of which 33 hectares are under vine and 13 different grape varieties are cultivated. In contrast to the rest of the Orvieto Classico DOC area the soil is of marine origin, dating from the Pliocene epoch. The oyster fossils and seashells that can be found scattered throughout the vineyard are testament to the presence of an ancient sea. Light in colour and rich in calcium, the soil provides the perfect growing environment for the vines. The clay component ensures adequate water-holding capacity for the dry season and calcium provides vital micro-nutrients for berry cell wall development. This soil structure is complemented by a unique microclimate, with constant ventilation and marked diurnal temperature variation, essential for the retention of acidity and aromas. As a result, our wines exhibit a characteristic minerality and freshness.

From this winery:

Decugnano dei Barbi is a winery that can boast enviable records. That of having, in 1978, created the first Classical Method of Umbria and that of having conceived, in 1981, the first muffato in Italy. All this is due to the will of Claudio Barbi, wh...
