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 »

  • Antinori Orvieto Classico Santa Cristina Campogrande 2003

    Snoothrank:

    This was a pleasant surprise. For less than $10, it provided quite a few classic Bordeaux flavors. Great ripe cherry, red plums, cassis and just a hint of leather come through on both the nose and palate. Ripe and full in the mouth. A nice old world style with a hint of new world fruit. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple color with a full seductive body. Aromas of Black Currant, Cinnamon, clove and fruit cake. Spicy, rich raspberry jam on the palate that finishes fresh with a long cherry aftertaste. This bottle held up perfectly to the complexity and spiciness of the dish it was paired with. Read More

  • Bea Santa Chiara Tavola Bianco 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A gorgeous golden, amber color. With aromas of fresh strawberries and a hint of lemon rind. Fresh cut grass honeysuckle comes to the fore as it warms above cellar temp. A medium to almost full bodied white with flavors of peach, melon and hazelnut. This unique bottle could be mistaken for a red if tasted blind. Beautiful fresh finish. Read More
