This wine has a medium ruby colour and a fruity, spicy and lightly floral bouquet. On the palate, its fruity character and freshness stand out. The tannins and distinct acidity are well balanced. Medium-bodied, well-structured, with a substantial length and pleasant balance.
Umbria and Lungarotti: These two names are very closely linked. This top winery deserves all the credit for helping the central Italian winemaking region to emerge from the shadows of neighbouring Tuscany and earn its reputation well beyond the Italian borders. Lungarotti owns 250 hectares of vineyards and two wine estates. The business was originally founded in the town of Torgiano. A second wine estate, mainly growing Sagrantino grapes, opened in Montefalco around 20 years ago. Lungarotti has recently begun using organic methods at this estate. A wide range of grape varieties is grown in the area surrounding Torgiano: notably Sangiovese, but also Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.
