Umbria is a wine region tucked in central Italy, surrounded by Tuscany, Latium and the Marche. 
It’s best known for its white wines, particularly Orvieto, produced from the Trebbiano (here sometimes called Procanico) grape. However, there are also several IGTs out of Umbria, which allow wine-makers to experiment with different grapes, often international varieties, blends and aging techniques. 
 
A very popular Umbrian white is a blend of Chardonnay with a small percentage of Grechetto, adding a unique regional twist to the typical Chardonnay. Other producers have taken to working with varietals such as Pinot Blanc, Trebbiano, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. 
 
Reds are often comprised of Sagrantino (the local celebrity red), Canailo, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. 
 
Styles of Umbria IGT are rosso, bianco, rosato, frizzante (lightly sparkling), passito (sweet) and Novello (young, in the style Read more »
