Lungarotti Rubesco

$20.63

Giorgio Lungarotti put Umbria on the map. Founding his winery in the late 1950’s, he was the first winemaker to introduce modern techniques to the region. In part thanks to his efforts and campaigning, Torgiano received DOC status in 1968. Sisters Chiara and Teresa assumed control of the winery after their father passed in 1999. The estate farms 243 hectares of vines, of which 223 hectares are in Torgiano. In 2000 the estate expanded to include 20 hectares in neighbouring Montefalco, where a second winery was built. All of their vines are farmed according to sustainable principles.

A benchmark wine for Umbria, this wine displays all of the hallmarks of central Italian wine. Deep garnet in color with a slight brickish rim, the nose is peppered with aromas of plum, tomato, and thyme. On the palate it is concentrated and firm, while still refreshingly acidic. Flavours range from savoury tart cherry, to black tea and bitter orange peels.
