Umbria | Wine region



The green heart of Italy is the name given to this central Italian region, the only one not bordering the sea, with a varied landscape of hills and mountains and very few flat areas. It is crossed by the Tiber River, into which numerous tributaries flow. It is also home to Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in central and southern Italy. It is an agricultural region where hemp and flax, tobacco, olives and wine are grown. Here you can also find the famous black truffles in the area of Norcia. A continental climate with strong temperature variations and more frequent rainfall on the Apennine heights characterize the region. The oldest testimonies about the viticulture of Umbria can be found already in Pliny the Elder. The wine town of Torgiano, where one of the two DOCG wines of the region comes from, is today home to an excellent wine museum. Umbria is also home to the famous white Orvieto, from the small town of the same name, situated above the course of the Tiber River, where the wine cellars were once located in tufa vaults. - Gerardo

"At first glance, the wine landscape of Umbria seems little changed from years past. Montefalco and Orvieto continue to be the 'game changers' and in a position to spur major investment and showcase the region's wines on the international stage.'" - Slow Wine



´Calanco´ · Umbria Rosso IGT 2015, Tenuta le Velette, Umbrien

Calanco · Umbria Rosso IGT 2015


Tenuta le Velette, Umbria

This fine blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby red in color with violet reflections and slightly brightening edges in the glass. On the nose, fruity aromas of redcurrants, raspberries and blueberries are combined with spicy notes that open up to balsamic sensations in the glass. Harmonious, well-structured and persistent on the palate, you can feel the spicy typicality of the Cabernet, which turns into a slight hint of paprika. A supple and polished tannin gives a soft and silky, very persistent finish that leaves room for a delicate vanilla note. - Gerardo [TS02/16]

"The complex and intense blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet brings in its cherry and cinnamon bouquet many a herbaceous note. In the tense, firm taste with the filigree tannin reveals a youthful creature with depth." - Gambero Rosso

´Gaudio´ · Umbria Rosso IGT 2014, Tenuta le Velette, Umbrien

Gaudio · Umbria Rosso IGT 2014


Tenuta le Velette, Umbria

The idea behind Gaudio is to create an Umbrian Merlot with international appeal - and Corrado Bottai has succeeded: The intense bouquet is reminiscent of dark berries and blackberries, mixed with vanilla and smoky notes. On the palate, it is powerful and complex, with a long-lasting finish.

Gaudio is the result of the synergy between a non-indigenous grape variety and the potential of the terroir. Merlot, a grape variety originally planted further north, has fascinated Corrado Bottai since the early 1990s with the idea of capturing the power of the summer sun in a rich, soft and enveloping wine. Deep and rich ruby red in color, Gaudio opens in the glass with a broad aromatic bouquet that ranges from cherry to blackberry, from cocoa to tobacco and leather. On the palate, it is full-bodied, enveloping, with a good balance between tannic sensations and softness, opening up to an impressive clarity. - Gerardo [TS02/15]

"Somewhat set apart from its bottled peers, as is so often the case, was the Gaudio, a single-varietal Merlot with a vivid bouquet of dark berries, lavender blossoms, chocolate and toasted notes; correspondingly, the expansive, fleshy flavor with its massive wood stamp and hints of coffee, though still somewhat under the spell of tannin." - Gambero Rosso

´Chiusa di Pannone´ Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2012, Antonelli, Umbrien

Chiusa di Pannone Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2012 (Bio)


Antonelli, Umbria

Dense ruby color and scattered crimson nuances in the glass. The intense bouquet is reminiscent of wild berries, spices and leather, underlined by subtle smoky notes. In the drink pithy and of finely balanced tannins, long-lasting finish. - Gerardo

"The top label of the house is the Montefalco Sagrantino Chiusa di Pannone, created in a kind of company-owned Clos. The 2005 embodies the absolute top class..." - Gambero Rosso

'Deep ruby. Explosive aromas of sweet, ripe red cherry, chocolate-covered plum, violet and cappuccino. Enters rich and suave, then turns somewhat more austere, offering lovely purity to its red fruit and sweet baking spice flavors. Displays lovely balance for a sagrantino with Antonelli-signature silky tannins and great length. Very well done." - Stephen Tanzer


"Transparent ruby red. On the nose aromas of varnish, tertiary aromas, humus, herbal nuances, ink and carob. The palate is tannic, warm and full-bodied. Long finish of ripe fruit and spices." - Daniele Cernilli (Doctor Wine)
