Umbria Wine

 

Umbria is a wine region tucked in central Italy, surrounded by Tuscany, Latium and the Marche. It’s a hilly area, with many of its 11 DOC’s beginning with ‘Colli,” Italian for slope or hill. The region is landlocked, and the first civilizations, the ancient Umbri and then the Etruscans, established their villages along the Tiber river as a hydration source. If you follow the legends of saints, one of the big ones, Francis of Assisi, for which the iconic town is named, was based here.
 
Umbria is best known for its white wines, particularly Orvieto, produced from the Trebbiano (here sometimes called Procanico) grape. This wine accounts for the majority of all the wine produced from the region. This is kind of a little black dress of a white wine, changing in style through the decades but always in fashion. Some trends dictate a young, fresh style, while others call for more sophisticated techniques in which the juice is left in contact with the skins for longer Read more »

  • Grechetto has hints of apples and pears with fresh acidity . I liked it with pecorino and salami as well as light pasta and risotto dishes. If you like a good Orvieto, which uses some grechetto, you would enjoy a 100% grechetto. Not easy to find in the U.S.
