Wines from Umbria

The sunny hills from Umbria are the ideal area to cultivate the vines and so, despite its little dimension, the Umbria region is one of the most renowned for the production of some of the best Italian wines. The wine tradition in Umbria is very old and the production techniques have remained the same. The Umbrian vines have low profits which means that the Umbrian wines are very quality ones obtained by an accurate selection. The Umbrian wine selection is so limited but with unique aromatic tastes which make the difference in your meal. There are both DOC and DOCG wines such as Colli Martani DOC with 13 denominations like the Grechetto a straw yellow color with a delicate aroma with an aftertaste lightly bitter but fruity too. There is also the Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG a red wine from Umbria which can be dry o raisin and it is obtained by the Sagrantino grapes cultivated in the Montefalco area.

The vines of the Umbrian wines

A part from the already quoted Sagrantino di Montefalco, a local vine from Umbria, within the DOCG there is also the Sangiovese which is used for the production of the Torgiano Rosso Riserva the first Umbrian wine which obtained both the DOC and the DOCG certification. There are also the red Montepulciano berries used for the production of the Orvietano Rosso DOC which takes this denomination only if produced with at least the 85% of grapes of a selected vine. Finally there are also the Canaiolo Nero and the Ciliegiolo used for the production of the Amelia DOC Cilegiolo Riserva. Very interesting is also the cultivation of the white berries starting with the Grechetto, following by the Trebbiano Spoletino vine used for the production of the typical Umbrian wine with a straw yellow color, fresh taste suitable for the aging and the Verdello called with this name for the color of its berries which has an intense fruity aroma and normally it is not vinified alone but with its local grapes.
