Fine Umbrian Wines

Umbria is an Italian region rich in fascination and culture with a well-known food and wine production, especially of oils and wine.

umbrian wines

It is the only region on the Italian penninsula not washed by the sea, represented by a territory which is largely mountainous and hilly. The Umbrian climate is characterized by not very cold winters and hot, dry summers, large ranges in temperatures and widespread rainfall: all positive factors for vine cultivation. In fact 17.000 hectares are destined to vine cultivation which allows a production of almost one million hectoliters of wine. The average production per hectare is fairly low, around 8,7 tonnes: a typical characteristic of quality grapes necessary to produce the best fine Italian wines.

Typical Umbrian vines and prized labels

The region is rich in both white and black grapes, with an equally distributed production in terms of quality and quantity, of white and red wines.

Grechetto is the vine of white grape variety most established in the area and is widespread practically throughout all of Umbria. The bunches are of medium size, oval in shape and the berries are characterized by a firm, thin skin. The grapes mature mainly towards the second half of September. Among the most appreciated and prized wines in this grape variety we find "Grecante Arnaldo Caprai".

Grecante is straw yellow in color with shades tending to green. The notes of pear and apple enriched with a citrus aroma reach the nose with an enveloping and full force. The taste is rough, but at the same time pleasantly fluid. The strength of this wine is enhanced by sensitiveness and it is perfect for a happy-go-lucky aperitif.

Sagrantino is a very small black grape with a thick skin, widespread especially in the Montefalco area. The microclimate in this area is the temperate continental type with temperatures mainly going down, precipitation is greater in autumn. Among the many labels thought highly of and appreciated by fans, we find "Cerrete" of the Paolo Bea winery, son of this dark grape.

To the eyes it has an intense red color and to the nose arrives the fragrance of its land, enriched with red fruits. On the palate it is full-bodied with a blend of pleasantly harmonious flavors: vanilla, blackberries, figs and prunes. Sagrantino di Montefalco goes well with game and roasts. Its structure firmly envelopes the soul and mind of those who sip it.

Pinot Noir is one of the most appreciated vines with red grapes in the world. Umbria, in particular the area of ​​Orvieto, with a fairly harsh climate and a slightly calcareous soil is home to these vines. The grapes are harvested mainly towards the first half of September. One of the most prized and appreciated wines born from this blend is the Pinot Nero "Andrea Formilli Fendi". It lights the glass with a bright red color and to the nose arrives a characteristic aroma of small red fruits. It goes very nicely with game and red meat. To the taste and to the soul, this wine arrives with great, expressive consistency.
