This is a tight, compact and slightly nervous Sangiovese-Canaiolo blend from Umbria that emits loads of intensity and aromatic energy: Forest berry, blueberries, violets, leather, nuts and spicy cinnamon all come to mind. It's an easy wine with a streamlined mouthfeel and a touch of thorny sourness on the finish. The natural acidity would make an excellent companion to most pasta dishes.

A lovely blend of Sangiovese (70%) and Canaiolo (30%) from Umbria. Lungarotti has been producing wines in Umbria since 1962 and was a major player in getting Umbria its DOC designation in 1968. Since then, its name has been synonymous with high quality wines worth every penny. Bright cherries and herbaceous spice are balanced by the acidity and structure. The wine is perfect to go with a multitude of traditional Italian meals.

Talk about traditional Sangiovese. This is that and more. It's light but still loaded with meaty, leathery qualities. In the mouth, the red berry fruit pops but it doesn't stampede; call it restrained. A less extracted wine from the old school.

A juicy, traditional young red, with lots of fruit and black pepper. Medium in body, it's straightforward and polished. Best after 1999.

Combining wine and art, the Rubesco label illustrates "The Grape Harvest," a detail from the Fontana Maggiore, a fountain in Perugia, by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, from the second half of the 13th century. This Umbrian wine is an elegant, smooth and well balanced blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Canaiolo that matches well with pasta, risotto, steaks, barbecue, veal or cheese.

An Umbrian blend of Sangiovese and Canaiolo, the Lungarotti Rubesco shows aromas and flavors of rustic blackberry and wild fruits. Medium to light in body, with a crisp, aromatic finish.
