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 »

  • Antonelli San Marco Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2005

    Snoothrank:

    We found this wine on holiday this year, 2012, in Umbria. Very full bodied and spicey. We enjoyed it so much that when we visited the town where it is made, Montefalco, we dropped in on the winery. They were very helpful and we tasted nearly all their produce and bought some as well !We would definitely recommend this wine. Read More

  • Stella Pinot Grigio Umbria IGT 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This might be my 1st pinot grigio. Lots of mineral and a hint of lemon. Buttery. Too subtle for me, but I'm not willing to dismiss an entire varietal just on one try. Read More

  • Passito Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito Caprai 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This wine was spectacular! A very deep purple colour, but on the nose it was AMAZING! I just can't describe the aromas. Oil, sugar, blackberry, flowers.. it so complex you have to drink it to understand me. On the mouth it is the first sweet wine with integrated tanins.. OMG you just have to taste it.. Cheers!

  • La Carraia Tizzonero Umbria IGT 2009

    Fruity nose, medium body, medium acidity, heavy on the oak, some mineral tones. A solid wine and a great value play, if not a little cookie-cutter. Read More

  • Brezza Dell Umbria Bianco Igt. Lungarotti 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Smells like youre zesting lime. Fresh, crisp, gently floral with a bit of green spiciness. On entry, this is lean and very direct, small-scaled and acid-driven with slightly pithy lemon flavors. With air, it gains a touch of weight and begins to show some of the green herbal and spice nuances from the nose. A lovely sipper, this gains some nice ... Read More
