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 »

Umbria on Snooth

  • Colpetrone Montefalco Rosso 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Powdered sugar on the nose with a high fruit top note of cherry compote and floral salinity adding some complexity. In the mouth this has delicate fruit on entry but a well structured palate of chewy tannins and mixed berry notes of raspberry and blueberry, finishing floral with hints of red licorice and fresh cream.

  • Colpetrone Montefalco Rosso Umbria Italy 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Really interesting sagrantino di montefalco from Colpetrone. There's a burst of black licorice coming out of the glass. Loads of ripe dark fruit on the tongue along with earth tones, tar, black licorice, a touch of mint, extremely grippy and drying tannins and medium acidity. This is a fairly big red that needs a good bit more bottle time to res... Read More

  • Falesco Merlot Dell Umbria 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Light and delicate red fruit aromas of raspberry and strawberry with some earthiness. Showing a brightness to start, more elegant red cherry and raspberry, some plum and a touch of tart cranberry on the finish. A very direct, easy drinking wine with few frills, this is pleasing and pleasant.88 pts Read More
