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 »

  • Lagaria Pinot Grigio 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fruit filled and mineral tinged, this wine showed quite well in a blind tasting of similarly priced wines. Nicely balanced between peach, citrus and melon, and then a flinty, nutty character bringing up the finish.91pts Read More

    Alone, this grape produces Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG. Blended with other grapes, it produces Rosso di Montefalco DOC. This wine is very intense ruby with purple reflections, the aroma is very persistent with typical accents of blackberries, plum and earth that are perfectly bound to the vanilla given by the wood. The taste is potent, smoo... Read More
