Castel Ritaldi | Commune in Perugia province in Umbria in central Italy, 7.5 miles (12km) from Spoleto, and less than 3.7 miles (6km) from Montefalco itself. Castel Ritaldi was created when the three medieval villages of Colle del Marchese, Castel San Govanni, and Castel Ritaldi merged. Part of its territory falls within the south-east of the coterminous Montefalco DOC and Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG zones (see below). It also falls with the Trebbiano Spoletino DOC (white wine), and Monti Martani DOP (olive oil) zones.

Wine style | Ian D’Agata (2019, 268) describes the Sagrantino wines of Castel Ritaldi as ‘softer and readier to drink’, compared to the Montefalco norm.
