Overview

Scacciadiavoli is one of the oldest winery in the area of Montefalco. The name Scacciadiavoli can be traced back to an episode of exorcism of the seventeenth century, reported by Johannes de Rupescissa in the Treaty on the Quintessence. The story tells about a young woman possessed by the devil, to which an exorcist give her drink the local red wine, succeeding in drive out the devil. The event gave its name to the village, still exists, appropriately called Scacciadiavoli. In the mid-nineteenth century, Prince Ugo Boncompagni Ludovisi built the winery, which is still functional and rational; From that moment, given the monumental size of the building, the site is called Localita Cantinone (large cellar). In the middle of the twentieth century, the grandfather of the current owners, Amilcare Pambuffetti, acquired ownership of the company, which covers an area of one hundred and thirty acres, of which twenty vineyards. The productions are typical of the area: Sagrantino (15 hectares), Red (12 hectares) and Grechetto (3 hectares), Montefalco Bianco (1 hectare) and Chardonnay (1 hectare).
